Notes & Reviews:

Thanks to high quality originals, these unmissable mono composer-recordings are being reissued by Dutton in its Epoch series. Frederick Grinke plays Rubbra's eloquent second Violin Sonata and two charming scores by Lennox Berkeley, while Max Rostal gives Reizenstein's Prologue, Variations and Finale a tremendous authority. These are cornerstones of the British twentieth century chamber music repertoire, here in their definitive recordings with all the weight of their composers' performances.

Gramophone Magazine
This CD is a magnificent rescue operation - three composers as pianists in their own violin-and-piano works, all recorded more than half a century ago. The Reizenstein recordings made in 1945 and transferred from shellac have come astonishingly well.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Decca's West Hampstead Studios, Broadhurst Gardens, NW6.
