Notes and Editorial Reviews
"... a very valuable addition to the Walton discography, particularly when the sound is outstanding, among the finest of its period. The ten little pieces of the Music for Children are delightfully done, with the subtleties of the instrumentation beautifully brought out, so that the final ‘Alla Marcia’ becomes quite a demonstration piece with its contrasting fanfares for horns and trumpets. It is good too to have the suite which Vilem Tausky drew from Walton’s wartime ballet, The Quest … it certainly makes a colourful and very characteristic suite in this brief form, superbly played by the LSO. Walton in his late sixties may have been a more relaxed conductor than he had been earlier, but with his feeling for rhythms and line he still provides unique insights"
Edward Greenfield, The Gramophone
