“… The performances from soloists and orchestra are adept, and Marriner’s lively direction makes a good case for this fare. It’s good to hear such buoyant music-making from a nonagenarian. Chandos’s sound is, per normal, first-rate.”
Don O’Connor – American Record Guide – March/April 2014
“… Marriner’s vigorous, well played and warmly recorded performances are self-recommending. If this interesting program tempts you, you should not be disappointed.”
Phillip Scott – Fanfare – March/April 2014

"... Altogether this is an attractive disc: all the ’ripieno’ soloists are excellent, Karl-Heinz Schütz’s flute and Robert Nagy’s cello calling for special mention. Marriner and the Academy of St martin in the Fields provide accompaniment of the necessary brio and point."
Calum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - February 2014
"...Sir Neville Marriner’s powers as a conductor show no slackening in this lively and youthful sounding programme, and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields sounds at the top of its game on its home turf. This is a release with everything going for it.
Dominy Clements - MusicWeb-International.com - 28 November 2013
"Three very different soundworlds - of Schulhoff, Krenek and D’Indy - form a fascinating programme and a delightful listen... Performances and recording are second-to-none: buy and explore!" *****
Guy Weatherall - Classical Music magazine - November 2013
“… this is an engaging and entertaining release from Chandos, nicely played and decently recorded …”
Michael Jameson – International Record Review – November 2013
"...Rare repertoire indeed and one for the curious."
Peter Spaull - Liverpool Post - 24 October 2013
“…An interesting mix then, well played and recorded throughout, with the Krenek being the undoubted highlight. “
