Reviews

‘The subtlety and variety of Clemens Krauss’s conducting […] is a continual delight, as is the playing of the orchestra. Patzak gives a performance of wonderful subtlety and charm as Sandor Barinkay … this is a thoroughly agreeable set.’ Opera magazine, April 1952

‘A truly excellent selection, with Patzak’s inimitable Sandor Barinkay, and Krauss proving he was as wonderful a conductor of Strauss Johann as of Strauss Richard.’ Opera magazine, August 1960
