 A Wonderful Find ! May 27, 2015 By David F. (Honolulu, HI) See All My Reviews "For years I have been searching for the Eunice Norton/Eugene Ormandy/Minneapolis Sym recording of Honneger's Concertino. It has never been bettered, its complicated rhythms and syncopations perfected rendered. Almost all the other artists are shown to good advantage. Fame is fleeting, when you consider how famous these artists once were, and how little-known most of them are today." Report Abuse
