Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine (Rossini: 1955)
The LSO supports Gamba brilliantly ... a natural sound, clear and with a well-defined bass.
Gramophone Magazine (Adventures in Sound)
Performances throughout are good ... well recorded.
Gramophone Magazine (Rossini: 1960)
La gazza ladra: the battery guaranteed to batter one through the back of one's chair ... The allegros are very fast indeed [and] one is open-mouthed to find that the LSO wind players still manage to phrase with their natural artistry and the violins at the opening of the allegro in Semiramide have all their repeated notes exactly together ... Gamba's Rossini crescendos are all superbly controlled, and with the vivid stereo recording I cannot imagine anyone failing to find this disc very exciting.
