Notes & Reviews:

"One work and performance here is truly extraordinary: the Oboe Quintet. Nicholas Daniel initially emerges from the string quartet as if from the ether - not merely because of his whisper-soft opening but because of these players' extraordinary ability to blend their tone colors. And that blend works both ways: sometimes the oboe sounds like a string, and sometimes you'd swear the strings were part of a woodwind quintet." - French, ARG

International Record Review
the Magginis are joined by Nicholas Daniel and Peter Donohue in the quintets; Martin Outram and Julian Rolton are violist and pianist respectively in the Sonata. There are excellent booklet notes and the recording quality is splendid throughout...
