“This is an excellent collection of music by Bliss and for the uninitiated it offers a very good introduction to his work. For the more seasoned Bliss collector there may well be opportunities to plug gaps in your collection. All these performances are worth hearing and the sound quality ranges from good – in the 1950s recordings – to first rate.” MusicWeb International, January 2015

Dame Ninette de Valois (1898-2001), known simply as "Madam", was quite simply the most influential figure in British ballet history. After dancing with Diaghilev's Ballet Russe, she founded her Academy of Choreographic Art in 1926, then ran the Sadler's Wells Ballet, and was Director of what became The Royal Ballet until her retirement in 1963

'..playing is robust, vigorous, and excellent, and the sound well above the norm. This release is an exceptional tribute...' (Fanfare)
