About

A fascinating selection of pieces by one of the twentieth century’s most original and perplexing figures. Constant Lambert is perhaps better known today for his strident views on his contemporaries, but he was also a composer of delightful, anarchic music, influenced particularly by Stravinsky and Ravel.

A distinguished line-up of performers presents these works in the clearest light. This recording is a must for anyone interested in twentieth-century music.

A distinguished release on all counts … immaculate production values throughout… this wonderful anthology deserves the widest possible currency’ - Gramophone

‘A fascinating and generous programme, superbly performed’ - Classic CD

Make haste to this collection. It’s a cracker’ - The Independent

Superlative’ - BBC Music Magazine

Stunning’ - BBC Record Review

Gramophone Editor's Choice / Critics' Choice
