Notes & Reviews:

'Music so agreeably appealing needs no further comment from me, and when the performances are as idiomatic and perky as these, captured in such fine sound, the disc becomes self-recommending. Good, clean fun!' (www.classicstoday.com)

'The playing here is absolutely first class: rhythmically taut, clear and bright in texture, with a wide range in dynamics, spaciously but not echoingly recorded' (Gramophone)

'The immediacy and brilliance of Hyperion's recording of music by Jean Françaix brings to the three works a wonderful panoply of colour' (Essex Chronicle)

'Crisp, stylish performances' (Classic FM Magazine)

'It would be hard to imagine more persuasive perfomances than these nimble accounts by Fischer and his alert Ulster players. Good clean sound, too. Warmly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
