Some recent reviews of Christopher Wrench’s performances: "In Dupré, Wrench proved himself a poet of the organ, in Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in a, a philosopher seeking the heavenly truths of the Thomas Cantor."

Neal Peres Da Costa. Matthew Wilkie brings a refined musical sensibility to this recording. He has an effortless technique and takes advantage of all the modern advances in musicology. With a gift for musical line and architecture—terms that are bandied around all the time—he is able to imbue this frequently cumbersome instrument with such grace and poetry.
The Galant Bassoon offers music of elegance and sophistication for all lovers of baroque instrumental music. Out now in Australia. Other countries, August.
