This is definitely not a CD to listen to in a half-hearted manner.  In spite of the ‘frothy’ nature of some of these ‘encores’ they are all to be savoured and enjoyed.  They may not shake the foundations of musical endeavour, but they are all good and worthy of their composers: they demand our interest.
