Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Previn's 1972 LSO version—reissued on Classics for Pleasure—emerges very favourably against the new competition. The recording is extremely vivid and the CD transfer a distinct success...woodwind and brass have plenty of colour and sonority and the balance is excellent. The performance is fresh and has a lively spontaneity. It is particularly good in the famous dances of Act 2, which have the orchestra on their toes." - Ivan March, Gramophone "Previn's 1972 LSO version—reissued on Classics for Pleasure—emerges very favourably against the new competition.
