Notes & Reviews:

"Performances by the Holst Sinfonietta and in particular pianist Florian Holscher are expert and sensitive; soprano Britta Stallmeister has a lovely voice and sings with supple, heartfelt expressiveness. Naxos's sonics are vivid, aquamarine clear, intimate, and natural. It's hard to imagine better performers or engineering for this music." - Lehman, American Record Guide
