' He is an outstanding and conscientious musician who plays in a wide variety of styles….His strongest asset is that he is a sensitive, listening musician……Mark is a very professional and talented performer who is reliable and focused….'

‘…Those celebrated parallel harmonies in A Pastoral Symphony (Vaughan Williams) were richly defined, and there was a feast of deft solo playing from all departments.

'...the concert concluded with Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony.….served the climactic moments of the first movement very well as did some very sonorous brass playing…….with antiphonal playing between horns, and trumpets and trombones was effective and impressive.'
