Notes & Reviews:

"There's little competition for these 14 pieces in the catalogue, though they're the kind of pieces that were staples on 78s and early LPs; Chandos has filled the gap in the market with pizzazz. The CD gets off to a sparkling start with Herold's 'Zampa' Overture - everybody knows it, but how often do you hear it?...Above all, everyone sounds as if they're having fun...Take regularly with a glass or two of champagne." ***** -BBC Music
