Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The performances have consistent life and integrity and striking spontaneity...the Nimbus engineers produce a sound-image with plenty of ambience, glowing, colorful pipings and throaty reeds, and plenty of weight when needed, the effect often expansively grand." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs - 2005/06 Edition

This release has received a Rosette – the highest award from the Penguin Guide.
