Notes and Editorial Reviews

...[E]xcellent Berlioz performances... Harold in Italy...is performed with high passion by Bernstein and soloist Donald McInnes. In fact, the only performance I can peg that is more fervent would be Charles Munch with William Primose and the Boston Symphony. I have always felt that Previn's ardent, exceptionally well played readings of...the composer's overtures is highly underrated...
