Notes & Reviews:

Following the success of the Lyrita 50th Anniversary sets, the label is proud to present this new four-CD compilation box set collecting British string concertos from the Lyrita catalog!

The Telegraph
It is like coming across long-buried treasure, and represents perhaps the finest exhibition our music has ever had.

MusicWeb International
...this is an historic collection for all sorts of reasons. These recordings will be listened to for many years to come. The heyday of Lyrita was an extraordinarily rich period for British music and for performers who were committed to it.
