Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A well-assembled programme of attractive works from 1905 (Ravel) to 1973 (Francaix), played by an expert ensemble and recorded with striking fidelity, all detail being warm but clear. . . . [A] group of rich-toned and serious-minded artists, whose ensemble is flawless; they excel in lyrical passages, such as the tender opening of the Francaix Octet’s slow movement . . . . [A] very recommendable disc." -- Lionel Salter, Gramophone "A well-assembled programme of attractive works from 1905 (Ravel) to 1973 (Francaix), played by an expert ensemble and recorded with striking fidelity, all detail being warm but clear. . . .
