Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Performances of exemplary quality' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs) 'Lovers of Bax's lushly romantic, turbulently Celtic symphonies and tone poems will find much that is alluring in this selection ... Moments of sweeping rhapsody abound throughout the disc. Seriously smitten Baxians will be thrilled by this new CD' (Classic CD) 'How marvellous it is after all these years to be able to welcome a truly first-rate modern recording of Bax's Nonet. What a bewitching creation it is ... This treasurable Hyperion release will certainly figure in my 'Critics' Choice' list at the end of the year ... Music-making of exquisite poise and remarkable perception' (Gramophone) 'This collection serves Bax admirably and contains some real discoveries' Read more (BBC Music Magazine) 'C'est ici la quintessence de la magie baxienne' (Diapason, France) Read less
