Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Dvorak's endearing Bagatelles for string trio and harmonium never fail to captivate and charm. They are a welcome ingredient in this well-priced compilation of predominantly Czech chamber music. The sympathetic Domus performances (from 1989-90) are recorded expertly and are well balanced." - PENGUIN GUIDE, 2003/4 Edition

"The recordings of this vintage Martinu were made in 1989-1990... This is a rewarding program with admirably alert and sensitive playing from Domus and eminently natural recorded sound." - PENGUIN GUIDE, 2003/4 Edition
