Notes & Reviews:

"It is all hugely enjoyable and well recorded, with very present and finely detailed sound. Recommended with enthusiasm." -Gramophone

'Delightful performances on which it would be difficult to improve, and excellent recordings too' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'It is all hugely enjoyable and well recorded, with very present and finely detailed sound. Recommended with enthusiasm' (Gramophone)

'This is very fine chamber music playing indeed. Delightful music played in exactly the right spirit' (Classic CD)

'It is difficult to conceive of better performances than these; each of the players ... combines to the highest degree a virtuoso command of his or her instrument, a complete involvement in the score at hand, and perfect blending in ensemble. Hyperion's recording is as pure and natural as one could wish. Even the booklet is a model of what such things should be ... Any serious collector who has not yet encountered this music should search for this disc ASAP' (Fanfare, USA)

'Superbe' (Diapason, France)

'I can't imagine [Susan Tomes's] playing will be surpassed in its sense of style and finesse. Much the same must be said of The Gaudier Ensemble who are little short of superb' (Gramophone)

'The Gaudier Ensemble is flawless, unfailingly persuasive and play with both vigour and polish which makes this issue irresistible' (Fanfare, USA)

'The Piano Quintet comes off marvellously and compares favourably with any performance on record, past or present' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Cherish this glowing collection of near-masterpieces, played with the utmost sensitivity and panache by the Gaudiers and the always wonderful Susan Tomes' BBC Music Magazine)
