“(Variations)“playing by the Philharmonia strings is of the highest order of distinction, beautifully blended tone at both ends of the dynamic spectrum. This should never be out of the catalogue” (Penguin 3 STARS)


(Serenade) “The remarkable thing about Peter Pears's performance ... is its consistency. This first recording is wonderfully intense with Dennis Brain uniquely magnetic on the horn” (Penguin Guide)
