Reviews

‘refreshing and illuminating … blistering playing’ Limelight

‘[Bartok] Dohnanyi doesn’t spare them a bit: the chase is one of the most exciting on disc, while the subsequent attack and attempted murder of the Mandarin (with terrifying organ sound) will make your hair stand on end… It’s a great performance, and so is the Petrushka… Sonically this stands among Decca’s best recordings from this source. A sensational reissue, and a bargain to boot’ ClassicsToday.com

‘First-rate performances of two of the most exciting scores in the twentieth-century ballet repertoire … the VPO’s playing is excellent … a splendid reissue that can be confidently recommended’ MusicWeb
