Notes & Reviews:

The great Russian conductor Igor Markevitch (1912 - 1983) was born in Kiev and spent his formative years in Switzerland. At the height of his powers in 1960, he returned to Russia and made a great impact with his concerts with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, resulting in this vibrant live and rare recording of the Verdi Requiem. The Rossini Overtures, all brilliantly played, have been sourced from a mint LP to give extra bloom to the sound.

The Guardian, 12th July 2012
One of the great interpretations, intensely felt and marvellously acute in its understanding of the balance between the score's devotional and dramatic elements. The playing and choral singing are frighteningly committed...The filler, meanwhile, is a selection of Rossini overtures recorded in Paris in 1957, done with bags of energy and impeccable wit.
