If Britten's Cello Suite No.3 is the undisputed masterpiece on this program, the other works are no less deserving of attention. Frank Merrick's 'Suite in the eighteenth-century style' is a particular delight. As ever, Steven Isserlis's booklet notes offer fascinatingly personal perspectives on the composers and their music.
