Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The singing is most attractive, the accompaniments rhythmically supportive, the recording clear and efficient.

Eloquence is a series of classical recordings culled from the archives of Decca and Deutsche Grammophon and originating from Australia. One of the most critically-acclaimed of classical reissue series in the world today, the series presents music for the casual buyer as well as increasingly for the connoisseur. Recordings on the Eloquence series have received the highest international critical acclaim for imagination and inventiveness. Most of all, it is noted for the resurrection of numerous analogue recordings hitherto unreleased on CD. Several have been given a 10/10 rating on ClassicsToday.

Among the highlights of this series have been the systematic exploration of the Decca recordings of Ernest Ansermet, Zubin Mehta, Peter Maag, Josef Krips, Kirsten Flagstad, István Kertész, Imogen Holst, Christopher Hogwood as well as such iconic ensembles as the Vienna Octet, the Fitzwilliam String Quartet and The Consort of Musicke. They have received the highest critical praise and most of them appearing on CD for the first time. In some cases Hogwood, Fitzwilliams, Consort of Musicke the artists have contributed introductory notes. Forthcoming is a survey of the Decca recordings of Alicia de Larrocha and the Deutsche Grammophon recordings of Lazar Berman and Irmgard Seefried.
