Notes & Reviews:

Somehow the Septet of Beethoven has a hard time escaping a certain element of 'corn' for this listener: Not so in this wonderful recording by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble. Instrumental tones are creamy smooth and voices are clear and well delineated. The venue of Potton Hall, Suffolk is perfect, and the sound is of demonstration quality. A terrific disc!
