Review By Geoffrey Norris,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),December 1999

"Brian Cant was the voice of the BBC's Playaway, and a star of the corporation's Christmas pantomime, so he has sound credentials to narrate such a seasonal favourite as Cinderella. He has a nice, light and understated touch in his story-telling, with a bit of the Edith Evans for the Fairy Godmother and a touching wonderment to match Prokofiev's scintillating score.

The musical performance relishes Prokofiev's melodic allure, rhythmic spirit and dramatic clarity, and revels in his crystalline instrumentation. In the suite from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty there is emotional grit and lustre to the playing of the Slovak orchestra, with Cant interpolating take in tones eager with anticipation. This bargain disc is perfect for children of all ages."
