Notes & Reviews:

Lennox Berkeley amassed over 100 works and contributed to almost every genre. Since he had the opportunity to write for some of the leading performers of the time - the 'Horn Trio' was written for Dennis Brain - chamber music featuring wind and strings held a particular attraction. The 'Sonatina' can also be performed on recorder and piano; in which guise its artless amalgam of Baroque and neo-Classical traits has ensured its popularity. The 'Viola Sonata' is among the more sombre of Berkeley's works and perhaps reflects something of the times - the aftermath of the Second World War - in which it was written. The 'Quintet' for wind and piano is among the more extended chamber works from Berkeley's later years.

"All offer excellent performances and are very well recorded with plenty of air around the sound and clean separation. Another excellent disc from Naxos, well worth the modest price." -Gramophone

"Stephen Stirling's horn playing is magical...Morgan Goff brings both sensitivity and charisma [to the Viola Sonata]. Pianist Raphael Terroni is a constant throughout these performances and is clearly a demur yet supportive chamber player." -BBC Music Magazine ****
