 Good recording February 28, 2013 By E. Fisch (Granada Hills, CA) See All My Reviews "Not as exciting as you have probably heard. Sound is clear but very dry--very good for 1956-1960. Carmen Suite is not the usual selection. Beecham does much better. I bought this for the overtures which were done very well, but Mignon is done better by Toscannini in older mono." Report Abuse
