Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Vol. 40 [of the Toscanini Collection is] a rare assortment of musical lollipops... The collection includes a revelatory performance of Ponchielli's ''Dance of the Hours'', Toscanini's own stupefyingly brilliant arrangement for full string orchestra of a moto perpetuo by Paganini, and a cholesterol-free account of An der schonen, blauen Donau that is a tremendous relief from Viennese tendentiousness in this waltz."
-- Richard Osborne, Gramophone [1/1991]
