Notes & Reviews:

Remastered recordings, originally issued on HMV, of ballet and waltz music conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
"On with the Dance!" is the title given to an unusual but thoroughly pleasing collection of works recorded 1960-62 near the end of Sargent's storied career. The performances are rather a throwback to earlier times in their elasticity of rhythm and aggressive shaping of the phrases. The resulting ebullience is quite overwhelming. Of particular interest is the fact that the Sylphides and Boutique Fantastique are heard here in the conductor 's own arrangements. Indeed the Strauss waltzes, Boutique Fantastique, and Rosamunde were recorded with the Royal Philharmonic - Beecham's own band.
