Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The contributions by Don Jackson and the LSO (the Mozart and Bizet) are splendidly relaxing. Souter is more relaxed in the Debussy than in the Chopin or Beethoven. The Gentle Lute is very nice, and Sleep, My Baby beautifully played by the Amber Quartet." -- Lynn René Bayley, Fanfare "The contributions by Don Jackson and the LSO (the Mozart and Bizet) are splendidly relaxing. Souter is more relaxed in the Debussy than in the Chopin or Beethoven. The Gentle Lute is very nice, and Sleep, My Baby beautifully played by the Amber Quartet." -- Lynn René Bayley, Fanfare Read less
