Wonderful playing from The Ambache, a London-based ensemble of variable size: You can sense the players enjoyment of Respighis rich textures, and technically they are completely reliable. The recorded sound is first-rate. This one is a very definite winner, and I recommend it highly.
I found these performances most enjoyable, and the recordings are excellent.

‘The members of The Ambache … meet its [the music’s] demands with technical command and passionate fervour.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9972
‘a highly committed performance with some brilliant playing from pianist Diana Ambache.’
The Strad on CHAN 9972
‘This is, quite simply, a lovely disc … the performances, by the British chamber group The Ambache … are effortlessly idiomatic …’
Fanfare on CHAN 9972
''and this disc from The Ambache should bring three of them a well-deserved wider currency.'
