Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

On downloading Brahms Sextets and coping with Greek rodents,
with Classical Music agony aunt ALICE McVEIGH

Ask Alice

? 'Dear Alice,

Have you heard the fantastic rendition of the Brahms Sextets by the Nash Ensemble? My wife added these to my iPod as one of my birthday presents and I'm hooked. I can't imagine these played better.

Ask Alice

Alice Dear J Lyon,

You piqued my curiosity with this so I got my husband to download the Nash's Brahms for me, and I have to say that it's hard to imagine a performance better balanced between instinctive, intuitive freedom and discipline than theirs, though why they chose a load of penguins to grace the CD is frankly beyond me...
