Notes & Reviews:

"The gorgeous harp concerto that opens this program has a neo-classical air to it, but the notes more correctly describe it as 'neo-modal'. It may remind the listener of the period music from 'Romeo and Juliet', and since that may be Rota's finest film score, that's not so bad. Most of these are first recordings, but the performances are so loving, spirited, and ingratiating that it is unlikely that any new-comers will best them. Splended sound." - Koldys, ARG

International Record Review
Altogether a pleasure. These are bright, capable, affectionate, well-pointed performances in good sound, with soloists who sound totally at home with the music...
