Of Noel Mewton-Wood: "No other musician of our time was so vitally gifted. Composers, performers, critics, all who listened to music - we shall all feel his loss. RIP." Andrew Porter, Gramophone Magazine, Dec. 1953
"I cannot urge this immensely important release on readers too strongly. It is, I am happy to say, one of the greatest records I have ever heard".
