Notes & Reviews:

"Most of us know little of this music, but one piece is better than the next. I frankly expected the usual one or two great pieces plus three or four decent ones and a pile of duds to fill out the disc. Not so! I can't come up with any clunkers. They are not only all good music, but they are all pleasant and attractive pieces... The playing is sweet and musical, the sound unobjectionable. Naxos turns out some great records at a very low cost to the consumer. This is one." -Vroon, ARG
