Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[A] high-class ensemble with superlative playing in all departments. Flor has an excellent feel for Mendelssohn's music. . . . [H]e understands the paradox that while Mendelssohn's scores should never be made to sound too heavy they often contain more emotional depth and expressive weight than is immediately apparent. . . . Camacho's Wedding is a real rarity, though it shouldn't be, [with] a charmingly open-hearted character and high craftsmanship. . . . Ruy Blas is given an urgently expressive yet beautifully balanced reading, while The Hebrides receives a delicately inflected, most imaginative performance. The recording of this very desirable disc seems to me just about ideal, for it has a very natural, warm quality with plenty of space, Read more clarity and detail." -- Gramophone Read less
