Notes & Reviews:

The Penguin Guide lavishly praises this benchmark recording from the 1980s: ‘Georgiadis is a warmly sympathetic Strauss conductor... no lack of lilt in the waltzes...all the polkas are spirited...playing throughout is of a high standard and the vivid modern recording cannot be faulted. The LSO is on top form and the rhythmic feel of the MCS CD 1070 playing combines lilt with polished liveliness.
