Reviews

‘Previtali does the outer movements [of the Pines of Rome] with the greatest liveliness, the quiet inner ones with sensitivity … The music [of ‘La giara’] is lively stuff of no great consequence but attractive enough in an unpretentious way. Good light listening. Gramophone

‘This recording is recommended to those particularly interested in Italian opera overtures and intermezzi … the playing is good and the recording good too’ (Wolf-Ferrari) Gramophone
