Notes & Reviews:

"An exceptionally attractive disc, beautifully recorded and superbly performed." -Gramophone

"Thea King sails through these quite different works, a marvelously communicative player. The English Chamber Orchestra does its usual superb job of combining precision and warmth. Even Barry Wordsworth, a conductor whom I normally find rather bland, bestirs himself to lead lively, sharp performances from all concerned. A winner of a disc." -Classical.net

'An exceptionally attractive disc, beautifully recorded and superbly performed' (Gramophone)

'Indispensable for all lovers of the clarinet as well as collectors of British music' (Fanfare, USA)

'A very welcome bargain reissue of one of Thea King's most inspired recordings' (The Guardian)
