Notes & Reviews:

Recorded in 1957-58, this compilation of music for strings comes from various Capitol and Seraphim LPs.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
In the 1950s he recorded several LPs for strings with studio orchestras. This is a sampling. Compensation for the smaller orchestra was made by studio effects; and the interpretations, often Stokowski arrangements, are at once warm, highly mannered, and very attractive. To be sure, Philadelphia recordings are generally preferable but these 1957-58 incarnations are in glorious sound - something not to be gainsaid. The little Rondino Giocoso by Theodor Berger that concludes the program is a seldom-heard gem, and the British production is first-rate.
