5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly presented and very instructive., 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book of Kells (Hardcover)
The details allow one to scrutinise the extraordinary artistry of the makers and to consider its interrelation with Anglo-Saxon art. The book is brilliant introduction to a unique artwork.

A very musical interpretation by a first-rate quartet; it demonstrates the joyful approach which must have influenced his young friend Mozart.

A wonderful contrast to the magisterial performance of Rosalyn Turek. I look forward to hearing the attempt of Mitsuko Uchida

This review is from: Bach: French Suites (Audio CD)
Excellent music impaired by a very badly-designed arrangement and presentation of the pieces: this means that listening to suites is a clumsy process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music., 18 Sep 2013

Just great music played by great musicians. I think Mozart wrote to his father saying that this quintet was the best he'd written (so far). I agree.

This review is from: Laughin And Scratchin (Audio CD)
Apparently, having played a session with Stan, Sonny Rollins once said, "Does anyone round here know how good this man is?"
Well, it's just great to hear him doing it.
