Arne’s “Judgment of Paris” ,Wigmore Hall

“A golden apple and a few flirtatious glances aside, this was a concert performance but a pleasingly sung one, neatly directed from the harpsichord by Benjamin Bayl, which revelled in Arne’s dapper tunes, busy violin descants and sizzling coloratura.”

Richard Morrison, The Times

Monteverdi - L'incoronazione di Poppea (Copenhagen)

"An intimate setting of this early opera classic seduces with live theatre and an effortless management of performance practice, with assured direction from Benjamin Bayl and his band of seven musicians who play lightly and precisely. A top hit."

Thomas Michelsen - Politiken

Ariodante, English Touring Opera

“Ariodante, conducted by Benjamin Bayl, held us in thrall… Try not to miss this touring delight.”

John Slavin, The Age, Melbourne

“This is a thrilling evening in which vocal glories are matched by outstanding playing from ETO’s baroque orchestra. Or, more accurately, that’s the excellent Benjamin Bayl, whose conducting is marked by flawless tempo choices and a precise ear for stage-pit balance… The three short hours of ETO’s Ariodante are sheer bliss.”

“The baroque orchestra, beautifully controlled by conductor Benjamin Bayl, played with verve and precision… [There was] A great sense of empathy with the conductor, and tremendous rapport between pit and stage.“

Orlando, Opera Australia

“Orchestra Victoria, under Benjamin Bayl… creates a stream of lyrical music-making.”

John Slavin, The Age, Melbourne

Melbourne City Voice

“Musically it is utterly gorgeous… that orchestra just knocked me out.”
