Notes and Editorial Reviews

“The meat in this club sandwich is the magnificent Piano Quintet in a fine performance by The Schubert Ensemble. The Serenade for Strings with the ASMF under Sir Neville Marriner opens proceedings affectionately and the Elegy and Spanish Lady Suite from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia both bring considerable charm... La Capricieuse has a nicely judged salon feel.” (Gramophone) “The meat in this club sandwich is the magnificent Piano Quintet in a fine performance by The Schubert Ensemble.
