Reviews

Glorious string playing and integrated brass and wind with real momentum and purpose in the playing … Maazel is the winner and the sound is stunning’ 2MBS Fine Music

‘It’s a bargain of a lifetime. There is no need to delay, only extreme enjoyment awaits you’ MusicWeb

‘…ravishing playing of the VPO…with Maazel relaxed and unforced (Suite No. 3) … All the things one expects from a classic Ansermet performance are here (Suite No. 4)’ **(*) Penguin Guide
