Notes and Editorial Reviews

"For an alternative Ancient Airs, I'd pass over Dorati's tense Mercury account in favor of digging up Ozawa's DG...the Japanese conductor hasn't the most light-fingered touch, but, compared to what we hear elsewhere, the Boston Symphony, truly, is the Rolls-Royce of ensembles."
