Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Michael Krein Saxophone Quartet was the first British group of its kind, as well as the first to be recorded. It was initially established by Krein himself, and then, after Krein's death, led by the celebrated British artist Jack Brymer. This disc gives an introduction to the group's work, and includes repertoire drawn from French composers such as Françaix, Clerisse and Albeniz as well as Krein's own delightful 'Valse Caprice'.
