Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Abbado's splendid account of the Sinfonietta still ranks among the best, with the conductor evoking a highly sympathetic response from the LSO. His acute sensitivity to dynamic nuances and his care for detail are felt in every bar. Superb couplings, too, in this 'Legends' transfer."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
