Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Toscanini's scintillating reading of this music is legendary. The sound is old and cramped, but after a few moments under Toscanini's spell, you forget its limitations." - Herbert Russcol, ( La Mer) Guide to Low-Priced Classical Records, 1968

"One had thought it impossible that every detail should emerge quite so clearly, without to some extent impairing the sweep and surge and swell of this marvelous music." - Edward Sackville-West, ( La Mer) The Record Guide
