AllMusic Review by

Each CD presents splendid performances by top-notch musicians of the most important Thai classical repertory. The only limitation is that the notes are meager, especially in Gaston's reluctance to express anything, including titles, in Thai, making identification difficult. The most controversial aspect is the several recordings made on reconstructed "historical" ensembles, the instrumentation of at least one being disputable.
