Notes and Editorial Reviews

Seattle Symphony Orchestra & *Chorus/Gerard Schwarz. Delos DE 3083 [*The Miraculous Mandarin (complete ballet) and Kodály: Háry Janos Suite and Dances of Galánta] (recorded 1988-89)

The Seattle Symphony and conductor Gerard Schwarz give a lighter, leaner, more episodic reading of The Miraculous Mandarin, but one not lacking in energy or brilliance. As is usual with Delos, the recorded sound is superb, naturally balanced and almost palpably solid. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection, reviewing a previous issue on Delos 3083 now reissued on Naxos 8571201.
