Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Boldly arresting... Individually it is Piatigorsky's sumptuous cello that gives me the greatest joy... The last [of the Sinfonias] really does emerge like a spirited episode from one of the Brandenburgs... The disc ends with a juicily plangent 1946 Ave Maria from Heifetz and his loyal old partner, Emanuel Bay." -- Joan Chissell, Gramophone [4/1989] "...Boldly arresting...
