Notes and Editorial Reviews

"For vitality, sharp-edged wit and melodic appeal [this recording of Martinu's Nonet] has the edge. And some of the most memorable playing occurs in the Andante: the singing cello and darkly atmospheric violin and viola figures create expectations which aren't to be disappointed—the flute and oboe song-theme in thirds towards the end has just the right blend of affection and fluency. . . . In the Spohr . . . the performance is a treasure . . . . The Vienna-Berlin Ensemble obviously relish Spohr's masterly and resourceful scoring, and they bring out the warm melancholy of the Adagio without any suggestion of special pleading. . . . Recommended." -- Stephen Johnson, Gramophone "For vitality, sharp-edged wit and melodic appeal [this recording of Martinu's Nonet] has the edge.
