Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bursting with life and a rather English sensibility, its subtlety of scoring is splendidly explored in this new recording from the Göttingen Festival Orchestra. Laurence Cummings makes the music dance and sing: touches like leaving the perky wind trios without continuo make the expressiveness of the strings as they enter all the more effective. Hugely enjoyable.
