Notes & Reviews:

"The playing of the various members of the Nash Ensemble is impeccable, as indeed is the recording." -Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

'The Nash's superb 1984 set of Malcolm Arnold's chamber music makes a welcome return. The wide stereo spread of the quintets ... enhances the sense of being in the room with the musicians' (BBC Music Magazine)

'An entertaining, at times compelling portrait of a British composer whose true measure we're only just beginning to gauge' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The playing of the various members of the Nash Ensemble is impeccable, as indeed is the recording' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Reveals Arnold at his most inventive: tuneful, witty and ingenious ... The performances by the individual members of the Nash are impeccable. This set may one day be equalled but it is unlikely to be bettered, and it deserves classic status' (International Record Review)

'An entertaining, at times compelling, portrait' (Classic FM Magazine, 'Best Buy')
