Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
The LSO under Collins provides balletic grace and drama. Van Beinum conducts the smoother-sounding LPO and Concertgebouw in engaging accounts of Romeo and Nutcracker.

Gramophone Magazine
Decca's new Capriccio Italien opens with wonderfully resonant trumpet-calls (surely far more impressive than the Italian Royal Cuirassiers ever could have made them sound in their barracks for Tchaikovsky's benefit !) ; and indeed it continues throughout with recording of a very high standard [... ] Francesca da Rimini [is notable for the] warm quality of recording ... seldom can a gong have sounded more menacing than at the beginning here ... this Francesca quite certainly must have [an] unhesitating recommendation.

Gramophone Magazine
Everything Eduard van Beinum recorded was distinctive ... the electricity and finesse of the performances is never in doubt ... The Nutcracker is beautifully played and ... the ear is taken by the neat, scaled down effect of the Overture, the gentle delicacy of the Sugar-Plum Fairy and the elegance of the lovely Waltz of the flowers, with ripe horns and resonant cello playing.

Ten recordings of classical masterpieces, ranging from Schubert to Tchaikovsky, performed by Zubin Mehta, Jorge Bolet and more, re-released at an affordable price.
