'Graceful and inventive works, easy on the ear, fresh in invention and refreshingly unpretentious. They should give a lot of pleasure' (Gramophone)
'Graceful and inventive works, easy on the ear, fresh in invention and refreshingly unpretentious. They should give a lot of pleasure'
"For there are abundant imaginative touches to go with the technical understanding. All these things are experienced to excellent effect thanks to the advocacy of the Delmé Quartet and the suitability of the Hyperion recording. All in all, an enthusiastic recommendation for some fine performances of worthwhile music."
(MusicWeb Feb 2005)

(Le Monde de la Musique, France)
