Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine (Kreutzer)
Full of grace and charm and has all the polish and virtuosity one has come to expect from this ensemble... .delicacy and lightness of touch ... performances are first-class ... The recording is quite superlative. Strongly recommended.

Gramophone Magazine (Rimsky-Korsakov)
Sheer joie de vivre ... an enlivening, engaging and original chamber-music disc if ever there was one.

Ten recordings of classical masterpieces, ranging from Rimsky-Korsakov to Sibelius, performed under the baton of Ernest Ansermet and more, rereleased at an affordable price.
