About

Tertis’s previous Biddulph albums are much in demand and fetching high prices since they were unavailable.

“This seals it for the Tertis collector. And Biddulph’s commitment to restoring all Tertis’s commercial discs to the catalogue has been immense. To them goes the credit” – MusicWeb (Vocalions)

“This is a veritable Feast of Tertis … this set is a cause of celebration for admirers … Praise be, we also get full matrix and issue numbers as well. So what we have here, in effect, is the most important body of recordings made by the most important violist of the first half of the twentieth century.”
 – MusicWeb (Columbias)
