Resonus is proud to present a programme of world premiere recordings of chamber music by the contemporary British composer Tom Armstrong.

'The performances are committed, the standouts being Jacob Fichert’s of Dance Maze: Variations, Simon Desbruslais’s of Duos (accompanied by Fichert) and the Fidelio Trio’s Divertissements, but in truth they are all first-rate. [...] Excellent clear sound from Resonus'
