"Both of the arrangements are beautiful, taking Satie's basic theme in sweet and and cloudily focused directions, and sounding great all the while. As with most of this label's productions, the packaging is as lovely and complex as the music." -The Wire

"Two things to say about this 'un – firstly exceptional and secondly, unquestionably immaculate." -The Sunday Experience
