Reviews

‘Those who want the feeling of footlights will plump for the new issue… I admire most the playing of the RPO and the crisp singing of the chorus.’ Gramophone

‘As might be expected from a Phase Four recording, the balances are all carefully… Nothing vocally or instrumentally goes unheard. There is a real sense of staging and movement which is all to the good. The dialogue is well handled and is very much a plus factor.’ Fanfare
