COMMENTS FROM CLASSICAL NOTES
These four miniatures have all the qualities that distinguish the whole of Jacob's output - fresh, tuneful, and written with absolute understanding of the colours and characteristics of the four instruments. They're what Vaughan-Williams would have called "household music" - pieces of elegant and practical musical craftsmanship, designed to do no more than give pleasure to listener and performer alike - R G Bratby
