Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (7-8/00, pp.93-94) - Recommended
Fanfare (1-2/00, pp.208-209) - "...Did Edison set out to top the classic Beecham performance (BBC Music 4011-2)? He almost has--certainly he rivals it...Naxos's sound strikes an ideal balance between vastness and impact....Splended! And enthusiastically recommended."
