Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Bartok Divertimento's opening Allegro is animated and well-pointed. The jollity and vigour of the finale are infectious. Most winning of all is Wolf’s Italian Serenade, here given in the composer’s own arrangement for string orchestra. It can be an elusive piece, but a light, delicate performance like this brings out its infectious wit, with lolloping dance rhythms given a delicious spring, making one wonder why it is not far more often performed either on disc or in the concert hall."

-- Gramophone [6/2001]
