Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is very upbeat music. McGlinn’s performances blend authenticity—original orchestrations have been used whenever possible—and technical assurance with almost unbridled enthusiasm and affection for this music. He is like an explorer excitedly displaying his newly unearthed treasures. And treasures they are; you’ll lose count of the many great songs that are quoted in these overtures.
