"Verdi overtures provide an astonishing variety of tunes and colour, and his ballet music, written for Paris productions of his operas, includes some of the most scintillatingly tuneful music he ever wrote. Edward Downes’s Verdi survey covers virtually all the overtures, preludes and ballet music, the latter full of charm when played so elegantly and recorded so beautifully. Origianl versions are included when available ... richly expansive recording, showing Chandos engineering at its most spectacular ... the Chandos set offers much to enjoy, and the spontaneity and elegance of the music-making are in doubt."

Sir Edward Downes directs a world-class orchestra, and the results are all one could wish for.
