Review By Christopher Morley,STARAN,

"...Since first appearing on six LP discs on the HMV label this indispensable account has gone through many reissues, but this Naxos presentation is particularly treasurable. Producer and audio restoration engineer Mark Obert-Thorn has done a thoroughly sensible and indeed musicianly job, preserving some of the flaws of the original recording in order to convey a full spectrum of frequencies, especially in the upper range.

The result is a gift of a set which might perhaps have those who already own one of its previous manifestations jettisoning that version for this so-musical production. *****"
