Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Gems a-plenty here – not all of them that well known – but everything is definitely worth the operetta lovers’ acquaintance. The recordings are 50+ years old but much more than acceptable, the playing somewhat variable but never less than satisfying, and the singing? Well, just look at the names... Every operetta lover will find lots to admire here."

-- Göran Forsling, MusicWeb International
