The Irish Times, 2005

The Irish Times, 2004

“As always, the Concorde members delivered passionate and commmitted performances throughout.”

The music played by Concorde is always contemporary, sounds fresh, and demands an innocent ear or at any rate an ear free of preconceptions.
Douglas Sealy, The Irish Times, October 2003

You should expect to hear music that draws upon a wealth of different influences, musical and otherwise. Like the composition by young and upcoming Irish composers Rob Canning, which mixes the clarinet with electronics; or the work of another Irish composers, Ed Bennett, which is a 'very clever use of speech, song and attitude!'
Carmel Vesey, City Tribune, July 2001

Concorde's appetite for new music could be called insatiable--and this characteristically adventurous programme brought works by two young Irish composers as well as by composers from abroad to an appreciative audience in the Hugh Lane Gallery.
Douglas Sealy, The Irish Times, May 2001

This was an astonishing expansion of the sonic capabilities of the instrument, and the audience in the Hugh Lane Gallery marvelled at the skill of the players.Douglas Sealy, The Irish Times, February 2001
