‘What a joy it is to have these virile, intelligent and gorgeously groomed performances back in circulation!… Wonderful music, inspired interpretations, excellent sound, perceptive booklet notes and modest cost to the consumer: anything less than a ’10/10′ would sell this disc short.’ 10/10 ClassicsToday.com.
