Notes & Reviews:

Neglected masterpieces? Not quite, though Andreas Romberg's undisguised homage to Mozart has something of the master's charm, as does the Brahms-saturated Quintet of Robert Fuchs; and Charles Stanford's Two Fantasies are easygoing, tuneful and very likeable... These are diversions - divertimenti - in the best sense of the word. Play them soberly or mechanically and they wilt and die. Fortunately there's plenty of lively, affectionate musicianship in these performances." ***** -BBC
