Notes and Editorial Reviews

This reissue is valuable in including the only available recording of the Op. 66 Scenes historiques, which are, as it happens, among the most attractive performance here. But all the musicmaking is positive and committed and as usual Gibson displays his special sympathy for the music's colour and atmosphere.
