4 1/2 stars - It all sounds like a wonderful musical magic mystery tour ... Edwardes continues to show amazing technique on a whole variety of colourful instruments and she’s now sorted, for the moment, the problem of accommodating her instruments in the back of the car!”
— Emyr Evans, Fine Music Magazine
Displaying brilliant solo work, this recording is...mesmerising with its repetitive strains, but is also highly energetic and exciting. The multitude of different colours, along with intricate rhythmic challenges, makes this a disc of exceptional bravery by a performer, who brings to her work a creativity and uniqueness, that is so often not experienced.”
— Barry Walmsley

Hindson, Matthew - Flash

The title track of the recording by Matthew Hindson is typical of his high-energy music - intense, fast-paced and virtuosic. As usual Claire Edwardes responds to the music’s challenges. The piece rounds off a recording that shows off not just a fine and versatile instrument, but one of the great performers that we have in Australia. This recording is for anyone serious about new Australian music.”
— Houston Dunleavy, Music Forum Magazine

— Anthony Fiumara, De Trouw, Amsterdam
Edwardes plays with the vitality necessary to make these pieces really sparkle, as well as with sensitivity to their dynamic subtleties. Tall Poppies’ sound is bright and nicely present.”

2005 Gramophone's Critic's Choice | 2005 CD of the Year in the Sunday Times (UK) | 5 stars BBC Music Magazine

The performances are simply wonderful…He [Nicolas Hodges] combines well with percussionist Claire Edwardes in The Axe Manual, a monumental, 22-minute study in rhythmic layering that reinterprets the relationship between the two players; it may be one of the less accessible of Birtwistle’s recent pieces, but it’s an impressive one.”
