Reviews

‘J.C. Bach’s bracing little symphony is the prize of the lot … the work was made for stereo … Performances are warm and sensitive.’ High Fidelity, May 1967 (Hurwitz)

‘These are undeniably attractive performances … and the Decca recording produces clean and lifelike sound.’ Gramophone (Hurwitz)

‘Bonynge’s LP of music by Johann Christian Bach and Antonio Salieri was in the Raymond Leppard mode: modern instruments, but historically aware performance styles. One doesn’t associate this conductor with 18th-century masters, yet this record was another example of his inquisitive tastes and solid scholarship.’ Fanfare (Bonynge)
