Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I enjoyed the Weinberg coupling...and shall be listening to this part of the CD again. Most listeners, however, will not be thinking of purchasing the disc in the first instance for Weinberg (formerly spelled Vainberg: the Nimbus notes have it both ways)...The Nimbus recording is clear, though it benefits from a small volume boost. Performance venue and date are not given in the notes, though I assume that Nimbus’s own studios on the Wyastone Estate were employed for all three recordings...but I want to hear the Weinberg again – indeed, this performance makes me want to explore his music further..."
