Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the Rapsodie espagnole Monteux conducts in a direct unfussy manner, but he points the Spanish rhythms in masterly fashion, and brings out the score's colour and atmosphere to great effect. His grave, delicately shaped account of the Pavane is sheer delight, too.

-- Gramophone [5/1990]

--------------------------------

Monteux's recording of the complete Mother Goose from the mid-sixties is much admired and deservedly so, for the warmly atmospheric recording suits the conductor's relaxed approach and the LSO playing is first rate. La valse too, hazily mysterious at the opening and reaching an exciting yet not over-driven climax, also benefits from the ambient resonance.

-- Gramophone
