Notes and Editorial Reviews

"There must be many Gramophone readers who cut their musical teeth on these recordings, and whose abilities to re-assess first loves will be challenged afresh by EMI's skilful transfers...the Mozart items are excellent, with a trim, nicely buoyed A Musical Joke (the multiple raspberry at the end of the Presto has genuine comic-strip impact) and a finely proportioned Symphony No. 29. Schubert's Unfinished is forward-moving and beautifully drawn, while Franck's D minor (recorded, believe it or not, within a week of Toscanini's final broadcast) has an imperious gait that trades Franco-Belgian exuberance for Teutonic weight. It is imposing but also rather earthbound. The recordings themselves are admirable, while well-balanced stereophony Read more confirms Cantelli's Toscanini-style orchestral positioning, with antiphonally placed violins."

-- Gramophone (11/1994)
