Notes & Reviews:

"Here's a more than welcome addition to the catalogue: an all too rare foray into Rossini's largely overlooked instrumental music in performances that fizz and sparkle with a winning effervescence... Performances throughout brim over with quicksilver wit and silky panache, the featured Budapest soloists eloquently illustrating the strength in depth of this fine orchestra in its third decade. On the whole, Fischer's tempi are winningly fleet and vivacious, and always vividly recorded." -BBC

Gramophone Magazine
The highlights of this collection are the Budapest players' vividly released accounts of the rarely recorded wind and string Serenata and the two youthful sets of variations for assorted soloists and small orchestra. ... engaging and stylish performances...
