REVIEWS

Records International
an utterly delightful 1957 "classical" symphony ... clear, concise and extrovert

The Times
As usual Dr. Jacob has met the challenge brilliantly, writing just the same clear, concise and unselfconscious and totally extrovert sort of music that a first-rate eighteenth-century craftsman might have produced while yet achieving a totally twentieth-century harmonic and textural piquancy.
