Reviews

‘The features that distinguish the excellent recording of [Fistoulari’s] Swan Lake are all present here. The orchestral playing is perhaps a trifle more stylish and suave in tone.’ (High Fidelity, October 1954)

‘Fistoulari is a marvellous Tchaikovsky ballet conductor.’ (Gramophone, December 1976)
