Notes & Reviews:

'Yet another super disc from this company. Thea King is no stranger to Hyperion but I think this may be her best disc to date for them. [The Frankel] is a masterpiece pure and simple and anyone who tells you different must be deaf' (Tempo)

'Thea King is a peerless advocate in just such a voyage of discovery' (Hi-Fi News)

'Easily the most important clarinet disc of the year' (Clarinet & Saxophone Journal)

'A CD to treasure and savour in the years to come' (Fanfare, USA)

'A most attractive disc, beautifully played' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
