Lynn René Bayley
Fanfare, July 2012

These are really marvelous performances all around…the collaboration was a truly special one…Bream’s clean, incisive attack, almost jaunty…and loaded with feeling, is among the most thrilling things ever recorded in the classical repertoire. Only the Romeros are in the same league as Bream. That’s how good he was.

…Newton’s remastering has magically removed the blemishes of Dynagroove, presenting us with clear, clean pressings of pristine quality.

Because this CD is not merely great but unique, representing as it does clearly authentic performances of Britten’s music by the performers it was composed for, this disc is not merely recommended, but shoots to the top of my Want List for the year. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare

Charles H. Parsons
American Record Guide, May 2012

This exquisite program has been a benchmark ever since its first issuance…The Britten pieces were specially composed for these artists. The other compositions are of equal beauty, sense, and sensibility. There are many settings of Shakespeare’s song ‘O Mistress Mine’ …and Fricker’s is one of the best. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
