Notes & Reviews:

"This is a remarkable performance, not perhaps as red-blooded as some, but intense, subtle and beautifully shaped. Some of Menuhin's intonation is a touch raw, and ensemble with Britten and Gendron is by no means perfect, but you'd have to be incredibly pernickety to let that put you off. Their account of the great slow movement is one of the most moving, atmospheric and musically revealing on record." ***** - Stephen Johnson, BBC Music Magazine
