Notes & Reviews:

"It's a pleasure to welcome Walter Piston's splendid 'Divertimento for Nine Instruments' back into the catalog...This is vintage Piston (from 1946): lucid, genial, full of bounce and wit in the outer allegros and wistful (but never sentimental) lyricism in the central Adagio...Performances by the New York Chamber Ensemble are polished and spirited..." -American Record Guide
