Michael Hurd - Orchestra Nova & George Vass

George Vass keeps the whole thing moving with zip and panache, his Orchestra Nova always sprightly in support.

Michael Bundy ... reminded me more than once of Owen Brannigan. The whole thing exudes charm and joie de vivre: it is well worth exploring not just on disc but by any opera group.
