Constant Lambert is perhaps better known today for his strident views on his contemporaries, but he was also a talented composer of delightful, anarchic music, influenced particularly by Stravinsky and Ravel. On this mid-priced Helios series reissue, the Nash Ensemble presents a sampling of Lambert's highly colorful works. This recording, a fascinating selection of pieces by one of the twentieth century’s most original and perplexing figures, is a must for anyone interested in twentieth-century music. Many of Lambert’s other works are also available on Hyperion.
