Notes & Reviews:

The revival of interest in the music of Robin Milford (1903 - 59) has largely bypassed his exquisite chamber music, an omission this recording seeks to redress. It presents some of his most attractive chamber works, showing his very personal - and very English - combination of melodic freshness, elegiac lyricism and echoes of folksong. The clarinetist Robert Plane has been described as the 'current occupier of the shoes of the late Thea King in his championship of British clarinet music'. Other notable performers include violinist Lucy Gould, violist David Adams and cellist Alice Neary.
