If I were to draft a list of classical music's most overlooked masterpieces, Carl Nielsen's Suite for Piano Op. 45 undoubtedly would head that list. Somewhere in the top five, however, would be Edward Elgar's Piano Quintet. This performance, by the Nash Ensemble, fully captures both the work's remarkable substantiveness and its essential Englishness. The Violin Sonata, unfortunately, is much less interesting, but at Helios' mid-price this is a five-star disc, regardless. The recorded sound is good and the booklet notes likewise are good.
