Notes & Reviews:

"The rarity here is the Serenade of Leo Weiner, the teacher closest to Solti in his student days, one who both challenged him and drew him out. The amiability of this music...seems to reflect Weiner's character as Solti's mentor...this is a delightful piece full of fresh, crisply conceived ideas...Solti could never have conceived a more winning last offering on disc." -Gramophone
