Notes & Reviews:

While we're on the subject of comparing pressings...as Shuichiro Kawai writes, "Hearing that Toscanini's HMV LPs sound better than those of RCA, I have collected several of them, which I find sounding richer and more musical than the more dynamic RCA's. Both pieces on this CD have been transferred from HMV LPs - the "Enigma" sounds absolutely rich, and the Saint-Saens is more robust in character than either the original RCA LP or CD reissues."
