Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
All is co-ordinated by Jon Tolansky...[who] is good at putting things in context and moving the whole presentation along with the seamless legato that he attributes to his chosen singers...The musical examples are particularly well chosen, both individually and in relation to one another.

BBC Music Magazine
Sometimes there's something to get your teeth into, such as Jon Vickers talking about beginning his career, and Rostropovich full of giggles as he remembers Benjamin Britten.
