Décidément, Arnold Bax mérite d'être découvert chez nous. Après avoir été enthousiasmé par ses poêmes symphoniques et ses symphonies, ses pièces pour chœur et orchestre, ses concertos, c'est sa musique de chambre que je découvre avec ce disque. Comment un tel musicien est-il passé innaperçu en France? Serions-nous si chauvins? C'est d'autant plus regretable que Bax semblait très au fait de notre musique car nous sommes ici dans un univers qui rappelle beaucoup Ravel ou Roussel. Une sonorité et une poésie très "Française" baignent ces pièces. Je n'ai pas de point de comparaison quand à l'interprétation, mais j'ai trouvé celle-ci très convaicante.Les plans sonore sont claires et lisibles. En tout cas, je suis devenu un inconditionnel de Bax, et comme c'est un compositeur prolixe, j'ai encore de bonnes perspectives d'agréables découvertes devant moi!

Great Music, Great Performances 3 février 2001
Par A.K.Farrar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
At the centre of all the pieces on this disc is the harp.
Bax writes wonderfully for the instrument - his inspiration possibly lying in the supposed `Irishness' of it, possibly in the luck he had of having some very good harpists to write for - the fantasy sonata (the combination of viola and harp really works well, and Bax manages to avoid an over lush sound) and the sonata for flute and harp having been written for the Russian harpist, Maria Korchinska.
I must admit, as I listened to the CD I found it very hard to think of Ireland - and very easy to think of France and Europe in the early 20th century. Maybe this is why I mobius have been attracted to the music.
The performances are excellent (as is the recording) bringing a dignity to the music which forces one to reassess, in a way, the nationalistic trivialisms that are all too often attached to Bax's music.
As the notes point out - some of this sounds very like Debussy - but it was written before. Some of it sounds like Britten too. If you like either of those two composers - you'll love this.

BOUNTIFUL BAX 1 février 2001
Par Melvyn M. Sobel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What better music to opine about than the latest Naxos endeavor comprising some mighty fine chamber music for harp by Arnold Bax (1883-1953). Purchased a mere week ago, I've been listening to it ceaselessly--- as it fits my rather lachrimose state of mind perfectly.

Among these four outstandingly evocative, elegiac and beautiful compositions, there's nary a dud to be found.

The Elegiac Trio for Harp, Viola and Flute--- first performed in 1917--- runs a mere 8:47, but it is a real gem... and easily worth the price of the CD, alone. Heartfelt, atmospheric, luminous, the Trio ranks very close to perfection in every way. The combination of instruments, each bringing to the work its own voice and color and warmth, is simply magical.

Ditto for the gorgeous Fantasy Sonata for Harp and Viola, first performed in 1927, whose third movement "Lento" is one of the most gentle of Bax inspirations I've ever heard. There is a distinct Anglo/Irish impressionism here--- and throughout the other works, as well--- so tender and romantic, yet so sad... it's impossible to resist.

The Sonata for Flute and Harp, performed in 1928, is yet another gem, unfolding as it does with the ambience of an Irish countryside. At its heart is the particularly wistful slow movement. Kudos to flautist Lorna McGhee for her tender, poetic playing.

Lastly, the Quintet for Harp and Strings (written in 1919) is a co-joined, three movement work. Generally more "dramatic" than its sisters, the Quintet still retains an obvious Bax melancholy, its overall tone introspective. Harpist Alison Nicholls is to be commended for her delicacy of touch and sense of mystery.

What an outstanding bargain this CD is! A real find. Moody, appealing, accessible. Compliments to the members of Mobius, who play splendidly, and to the engineers who have captured their warmth and immediacy so well.

Bax the Impressionist 27 novembre 2007
Par Philip Spires - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The four works here vary from well known to little known. The widely played Elegiac Trio is gently and elegantly presented. It's an understated piece, in my mind showing Bax at his most "impressionistic". Mobius have the feeling , pace and musical sense correct, but there is room for at bit more passion here and there. The less well known sonatas for flute and harp and viola and harp are also well played, with a good sense of communication between the players. Bax's writing for harp is a revelation. It's lyrical and constructive, displaying none of the potential for show off arpeggios that might be suggested by his writing for piano in the sonatas. The quintet is convincing. High marks for content, above average for interpretation.

simply a pleasure 3 août 2005
Par G. Metcalf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This recording contains chamber works featuring a harp. All of the pieces are pleasant to listen to and have stimulating content. The recording is very good. This CD was my first experience with Bax and has certainly inspired me to look for more.

Rewarding release 11 avril 2009
Par G.D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I have never really been convinced by Bax's chamber output - Bax was a master of orchestral colors, able to bring forth nuances in shadings and even temperature when he had access to the full palette of the orchestra. With smaller forces, he sometimes tried different things, only rarely with any particular success. That said, the works on this disc belongs to his absolutely best chamber works, realizing many of the finest qualities of his best orchestral music. This is intensely atmospheric, for the most part wistful and reflective and dream-like music - some would perhaps see the picturesque, pastoral music as placing the works squarely in the British cowpat school, but never mind that: This is music of shimmering summer (or autumn) landscapes, blue skies, green briars, solitude and lyricism - not necessarily untroubled or thoroughly pastoral, but generally softly nuanced and representing subtle moods and impressions.

That said, beauty of sound and soft impressionism is given priority over structural considerations as well, in particular in the quintet and the sonata for flute and harp. The quintet is an impressive work nonetheless, with a shadowy and somewhat unsettling second movement. The Elegiac Trio for flute, viola and harp is, on the other hand, close to being a genuine little masterpiece (it was also one of the composer's own favorite works), where the memories of the Great War is the background foil for subdued and quietly nostalgic music, masterly created and profound; somewhat akin to and a more than worthy companion to Debussy's more or less contemporaneous work for the same forces. The sonata for flue and harp is an altogether less memorable creation; it flows along nicely, but is subsequently forgotten as soon as it's over. The sonata for viola and harp, on the other hand, is more substantial; a serious composition, well-crafted and inventive.

The performances are uniformly superb, especially the harp of Alison Nicholls, evocatively realizing the various moods and shadings and emotional nuances. She is accompanied by assured and zestful - overall excellent - playing from members of the seven-strong Mobius ensemble (although, if I were to be nitpicky, the flute playing is generally more impressive than the viola). No complaints about the sound, either. This disc is, in other words, very strongly recommended.
