Notes & Reviews:

"These performances have enormous flamboyance and excitement. The closing sections of the more volatile Hungarian rhapsodies have a thrilling impetus... the charisma of these performances is unforgettable. A fine reminder of a conductor who's music-making was individual to the point of eccentricity but who was incapable of routine gestures." -Penguin Guide
