Notes & Reviews:

"Vernon Handley has long been considered our finest Bax interpreter... presented clearly by the Chandos engineers in sound that is balanced and slightly distant." - Hecht, ARG

Gramophone - James Jolly
A set that exudes love for the often great music on every page - a modern classic
