Sprightly strings from Delius, virtuosic flute from Pleyel, spiky Strings, Percussion and Celesta from Bartok and a boisterous polka by Smetana - contrasted with the more serene: Amy Beach's evocation of the morning call of a songbird, Sibelius's hymn to his homeland and a viola sonata by Quantz full of loving affection.
