"Sparklingly energetic arrangements"

  • The Arts Desk

"Edgar Pettman's wistful Gabriel's Message feels as if it's being improvised on the spot. As does Adie's tender reinvention of I Wonder as I Wander – all the better for using so much of the instruments' lower registers."

“Sun, Moon and Stars `A Middle Eastern Sky' by Harriet Adie was very enchanting. Depicting a childhood in the far-east, beautiful textures combined with eastern scale and harmonies, it was quite spellbinding.”

  • Lichfield Mercury

“…most impressive of all – Adie’s transcription of three movements from Ravel’s “Mother Goose”. With its whispered tremolandi, jewel-like harmonics, and deep, clangourous gong effects, this was superbly transcribed and equally superbly played. It made the more familiar piano version seem positively drab by comparison.”

  • The Oxford Times

“…Fauré’s gorgeous Sicilienne showed the instruments at their lyrical, sublime best…”

  • Music and Vision

“The concert ended with the première of Harriet Adie's own Jewellery box. She is clearly a talented composer and this is an effective work which matched scale and expressive range. There was an intriguing Scottish flavour to 'Moonstone', while 'Diamond' ended the work in a torrent of driving energy.”

  • South Wales Evening Post

“….the transcendental Elemental (composed by Harriet Adie). Adie’s composition was innovative and well phrased, displaying a timely use of percussive sounds chiming with contemplative passages.”
