Notes & Reviews:

'As ever, the disc is a revelation ... Once heard this infectious music is not easily forgotten, which is a tribute to the enthusiasm and conviction of the performances' (Classic CD)

'Peter Holman's flair for drama illuminates the evocative settings of these lesser-known composers. Both conducting and sound quality capture the nuances of textures, registers and sonorities' (BBC Music Magazine)
