Notes and Editorial Reviews



The subtlety, the sheer dexterity of the interplay between the members of the Nash Ensemble in this wonderful disc can be dizzying to hear. It’s not simply a question of how fast they can play the notes; it has more to do with the speed, nimbleness and yet profundity with which they can switch emotions, dipping in and out of moods seemingly at will. This is very classy playing indeed.

-- Gramophone [9/2007]
