Notes & Reviews:

"The playing of The Nash Ensemble evinces consummate refinement and total dedication; their heartwarmingly eloquent reading communicates strongly." - Gramophone

'By any standards this is a major Elgar recording. I cannot recommend it too highly' (The Elgar Society Journal)

'As ever the playing of the Nash Ensemble evinces consummate refinement and total dedication; their heartwarmingly eloquent reading communicates strongly ... No true Elgarian could fail to derive considerable satisfaction from such effortlessly idiomatic music-making' (Gramophone)

'My top recommendation ... would remain the Hyperion recording of the Nash Ensemble, also with Ian Brown, which combines high-calibre individual playing with all the requisite nostalgic resonances' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Interpétation idéale' (Diapason, France)
