This delightful programme contains an amazingly inventive Fantazie by Locke, a passionate Andamento malinconico by Matteis, the fastest recorder playing you’ve ever heard, and foot-tapping dances.

The sound is excellent, and easily supports four performers with techniques so sharply honed that they can communicate carefree abandon as readily as the profoundest passion. Recommended without reservation. George Pratt
