Notes & Reviews:

First Choice features top artists - in the first batch, Claudio Abbado, the Emerson String Quartet, Helene Grimaud, Herbert von Karajan, James Levine, Anna Netrebko, Itzahak Perlman, Trevor Pinnock, Gil Shaham, Bryn Terfel and Krystian Zimerman - performing great music in best-selling and benchmark recordings from the last 30 years.

The look is fresh, modern, easy to grasp: original album covers newly presented in a Polaroid-style frame, with series blurb on spine "Original Album Series". The Polaroid look is carried through in the booklet layout and forms the basis of the entire product image. Each release comes with new liner notes on the artist and recordings by expert authors and critics.

Fanfare, September/October 1991
Sinopoli gives Night on Bald Mountain a reading of great freedom, with extreme tempos, which both maximizes the excitement and humanizes the work.

Gramophone, May 1991
Sinopoli s new recording of Mussorgsky s Pictures at an Exhibition is quite splendid ... a marvellous performance, full of new things to discover in Ravel s fastidiously imaginative scoring.
