Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics relaunches the popular EMI Master Series: The definitive series of great classical music from a trove of the most notable and revered classical recordings ever made. Available on CD and for digital download, this newly repackaged installment of 10 master celebrates EMI Classics' greatest artists, including Maria Callas, Nigel Kennedy and Itzhak Perlman. All performances in this series were recorded, mastered, or a re-mastered at the internationally renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gramophone
Previn's (performance of the Concerto) has great virtues; the touching solo playing at the end of the slow movement, for example, and the tremendous virtuosity of the LSO in the finale... A splendid performance of An American in Paris, full of virtuoso playing and of real character.

Notes & Reviews:
