McNeill and Quigley, Clarinet and Piano Duo
"What a combination! The youthful duo gave the audience at St Cuthbert’s a varied and sumptuous feast of the very highest standard. Lutowslawski’s Dance Preludes and then Herbert Howells’ sonata were awesome, mixing passion with sublime serenity."
The Cumberland News, recital with David Quigley, Carlisle Music Society, October 2014
"The French items, Poulenc's Sonata and Francaix's Tema con variazioni were a perfect foil to the seriousness of Brahms. Both artists let their hair down in a display of virtuosity, whit and technical brilliance which deservedly earned them an encore."
The Westmorland Gazette, recital with David Quigley, Music at Brathay series, July 2013
