Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine, (Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta)
Solti secures an excellently played and finely graded reading [... ] The Decca engineers give us clean-cut tone without it becoming dry [... ] Balance is most sensitive throughout.
Gramophone Magazine, (The Miraculous Mandarin: suite)
There is a daemonic intensity about this which never lets up [... ] a brilliant performance of a disturbing work.
The Divertimento is superbly done ... incisive and full - bodied, and the Hugarian and Romanian dances have all the atmosphere one could wish for.
Penguin Guide (Dance Suite)
'There is more spontaneity too [than in his Chicago recording] and one senses Solti's Hungarian upbringing more readily here [Concerto for Orchestra] [... ] the performance is strong and fiery and the recording exemplary.
