Notes and Editorial Reviews

[T]he members of the Nash Ensemble (with their flutist Philippa Davies) [are] a group of musicians with a flexible membership that has been playing together for some years. Thus they instinctively know what to expect from their colleagues and provide true unanimity of performance. ...I do find myself preferring the Nash Ensemble's readings with their greater flexibility of tempo... The Virgin Classics recording is good to the point of being a demonstration disc to show how a group like this should sound.

-- John Bauman, FANFARE [7/1990]
reviewing K 285, 285a, 285b and 298, previously released as Virgin 90740
