Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The amazing precision and point of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, working without a conductor, is here directed to two favourite romantic string works, which with the Elegiac Melodies as a worthwhile supplement makes an attractive package, warmly played and recorded. Anyone who fancies this coupling need not hesitate... the Orpheus performances are beautifully recorded in warm, atmospheric sound." -- Edward Greenfield, Gramophone (2/1988) "The amazing precision and point of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, working without a conductor, is here directed to two favourite romantic string works, which with the Elegiac Melodies as a worthwhile supplement makes an attractive package, warmly played and recorded.
