The songs of John Lennon, from Beatlesto “Woman”, rendered instrumentally by two guitars, violin, bass and drums– ensemble interpretations which, miraculously, give thorough accounts ofeach melody and attendant harmony.Not all of it works. “Hold On” barelybecomes itself and the outbreak ofBach in the middle of “In My Life”borders on the twee. But for the mostpart this is a glorious hymn to the artof playing together, of which Lennonwould surely approve.
