Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This latest release in Decca’s “Original Masters” series should be welcomed by anyone, who, like myself, has had fond memories of these recordings for roughly half a century. Not everything here, to be sure, comprises performances that were among the preferred versions of their day, but each, in its own way, reveals a musical conductor very much in command of the work at hand and the performers under his charge." - Mortimer H.
