Reviews

‘…a very rewarding disc: splendid music, played with feeling and style, and finely recorded’ (Charpentier) Gramophone

‘Performances are excellent … Leppard splendidly catches the sense of wilfulness and quirky brilliance which lends his music its special colour’ (Rameau) Gramophone

‘an extremely pleasing record’ (Rameau: Suite 2 / Grétry) Gramophone
