A Different Game features the considerable dynamic, expressive capabilities of The Fidelio Trio performing six chamber compositions that stand out for the articulate flow of modern classicalideas and the structural strengths... Clarke comes through as an original stylist and a brilliant musical conversationalist.." -- Greg Edwards, Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music

"She has managed to create an exciting and often challenging personal voice that is always interesting and often quite beautiful." -- John France, MusicWeb
