Reviews

‘The Borodin Dances are up to the splendid and exciting standards reached by Markevitch in his Tchaikovsky symphony recordings.’ (Polovtsian Dances) Fanfare, May 1981

‘A remarkably successful performance, It is exciting and it hangs together as a whole … The sound is very good indeed.’ (Finlandia)
‘The strings sound really lovely and the performance has sentiment enough but is never overdone.’ (Elegiac Melodies) Gramophone, November 1960

‘All three of the flamboyant overtures newly issued are beautifully done.’ (Benvenuto Cellini, Ruslan and Ludmila, La forza del destino) Gramophone, March 1971
