Reviews

'Superb. An enthusiastic recommendation' (Gramophone)

'The music on this disc is worth getting to know. The playing of the Nash Ensemble is excellent and the recording is ideally balanced' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Reveals Arnold at his most inventive: tuneful, witty and ingenious…The performances by the individual members of the Nash are impeccable. This set may one day be equalled but it is unlikely to be bettered, and it deserves classic status' (International Record Review)

'An entertaining, at times compelling, portrait' (Classic FM Magazine)
