Notes & Reviews:

Andre Previn will celebrate his 80th birthday this spring with a series of concerts at Carnegie Hall that reflect his incredible, tireless artistry - new compositions; Previn at the keyboard in jazz, chamber and concerto performances; and Previn the incomparable Maestro. To celebrate this legendary musician, Sony Masterworks draws upon Andre Previn's uniquely rich catalog and presents an 80th Birthday Celebration CD that showcases him as conductor, composer, arranger and performer, featuring recordings by and with some of his best-known friends and colleagues.

BBC Music Magazine
Celebrating AndrT Previn's 80th birthday, a first CD release for his imaginative 1971 Guitar Concerto for John Williams - supplemented by glimpses of Previn as conductor (Vaughan Williams's Wasps buzzing fiercely), film composer, and jazz pianist.

The Independent
The opening 1971 LSO recording of Vaughan Williams' overture to The Wasps is fine.
