Schumann 'Rhenish' Symphony

Yorkshire Times

He chose exactly the right tempo with the result that the whole symphony was full of energy and rhythmic drive. Added to which there was excellent attention to detail, dynamics and balance which ensured that all the melodic lines could be clearly heard as there can be a tendency in this work for these to get lost when the orchestral texture becomes fuller.

Schoenberg Verklate Nacht

Craven Herald

Ben Crick's unambiguous conducting brought out the narrative in this piece unerringly.

Haydn 'Clock' Symphony

Grimsby Chronicle

Under the direction of Ben Crick the orchestra played with flair, accuracy and, perhaps most refreshingly, a genuine sense of fun.

Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings

Ilkley Gazette

Ben Crick is getting ever more skilled at coaxing out every possible colour from the string section of the excellent Skipton Building Society Camerata.

Dido and Aeneas

Lancaster Guardian

Crick's tempi and dramatic pacing were perfectly judged, allowing a full exploration of Dido's flawed character.

The Messiah

Bradford Telegraph and Argus

Handel’s miraculous score emerged with clarity – helped mainly by Ben Crick’s well judged lively tempi.
