Sherban Lupu and the Sinfonia Varsovia give stellar performances of Enescu's music.

George Enescu was an extraordinary musician. One of the most acclaimed violinists of the last century, he was also an accomplished pianist, conductor, and composer. As a composer he is still too little known and his music too little analyzed outside his native Romania. His music exhibits a very personal blend of time-honored procedures, forward-thinking techniques, and ethnic intimations. The works on this recording belong to the last period of his career and show a rare maturity and depth that contribute to a unique and sometimes difficult to define language.

"Cyclical, energized, colorful, and consistently engaging, this music--the entire disc--provides a new perspective into the kaleidoscope of Enescu's musical character, a real coup for Ian Hobson and his gifted ensemble." (Audiophile Audition)

"Impressions of a 23 minute suite blending sonic mimicry, luminous beauty, and plaintive feeling into a magical vision of a child's world. Like all the music on this disc, it's lovingly performed ...One surrenders to to this music as if to the ineffable rapture of a miraculous dream." (The Absolute Sound)
