Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.234-45) - "...Arthur Bliss's 1932 `Clarinet Quintet', which is performed now and then...does deserve standard repertoire status....[Rawthorne's quartet] is a bit acerbic but melodic and tonal, ingenious and interesting in its handling of short musical motives....The divertimento-like quintet of Francis Routh...written as recently as 1994, is peppery and fun....[Nicholas Cox] is an accomplished clarinetist with nimble fingers and a smooth, solid tone without much vibrato--perfectly suited to this music..."
