Notes & Reviews:

Sir Edward Downes is one of the most distinguished Verdi authorities in the world. His lifetime of experience in the opera house, where he has performed all of Verdis operas, undoubtedly tells throughout these performances. This series programs all Verdis Preludes, Overtures and Ballet Music in chronological order. Each disc contains a mixture of well-known and less familiar music. This treasure-trove is a comprehensive survey of all the purely orchestral music from Verdis operasEdward Downes who conducts with passion and power, shows himself once again to be one of his countrys leading Verdians. - The Times of London
