Notes and Editorial Reviews
"...Interpretatively Ormandy scores consistently...whether in the mystery of the fairy music or the natural unforced sweetness of the slow coda of the Overture or the lightness of pointing in the Scherzo. Also the soloists of the Philadelphia Orchestra consistently shine..." -- Edward Greenfield, Gramophone [1/1986]
