Notes & Reviews:

Constant Lambert is perhaps better known today for his strident views on his contemporaries, but he was also a talented composer of delightful, anarchic music, influenced particularly by Stravinsky and Ravel. On this mid-priced Helios series reissue, the Nash Ensemble presents a sampling of Lambert's highly colorful works. This recording, a fascinating selection of pieces by one of the twentieth century's most original and perplexing figures, is a must for anyone interested in twentieth-century music. Many of Lambert's other works are also available on Hyperion.

Classic CD
A fascinating and generous programme, superbly performed.

Gramophone Magazine
A distinguished release on all counts ... immaculate production values throughout... this wonderful anthology deserves the widest possible currency.

The Independent
Make haste to this collection. It's a cracker.
