“you can relish this recommendable collection which concentrates on the lighter and more concise Nielsen (five of the nine tracks are theatre music). This is a vividly characterised and easily recommendable anthology and the Little Suite receives one of its most winning recordings ever.” (Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International)
