Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This collected Duo edition contains much attractive music, beautifully played and recorded, guaranteed to delight anyone wanting undemanding symphonies as alternatives to those of Brahms of Schumann. Masur's performances with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra are characteristically warm and refined, with smooth recording to match."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]

"Exciting music-making is provided in the assortment of violin works where Accardo appears completely attuned to Bruch’s lyrical vein, managing to convince me that the deeply affecting In memoriam hardly deserves to languish in almost total obscurity."

-- Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine
