  • Concert reviewsOpen or Close
    Peter Sparks had assembled a diverse showcase ... and if the premiere of Peter Wiegold's Aulos (2007) impressed more as an event than as music, the interplay of Sparks and pianist Matthew Schellhorn amply confirmed their artistic rapport
    The Classical Source
    Sparks and Schellhorn concluded their set with the premiere Peter Wiegold's Aulos. In this, fast and furious passages inspired by Bacchanalian dance, alternate with quieter moments reflecting the stillness and coldness of the night. The result is almost a rondo and concludes with a puzzling coda where the clarinettist has to wander off the stage. ... Sparks and Schellhorn are definitely players to watch
