Michael Oliver wrote in a Gramophone Magazine review of the Galliard's most recent CD for the Deux Elles label 'pure pleasure... This, in short is wind quintet playing of great distinction... From this admirably recorded disc you also get a very good idea of how enjoyable the Galliard's public concerts must be. Strongly recommended'.
