Notes & Reviews:

Fanfare
The disc of choral-orchestral music is the most consistently fine of the four. The Bells is one of the best-sounding performances in the set, and the music seems to unfold naturally at Dutoit's tempos. The soloists are all strong, although soprano Alexandrina Pendachanska has a tremulous vibrato that will bother some listeners. Sergei Leiferkus is superb, and one couldn't tell from the finished recording that his part was dubbed in after the rest of the performance was recorded! Dutoit's Spring may be the finest ever recorded, again featuring an ideal contribution from Leiferkus.
