"...a considered, powerful reading and though not always flattered by the mono sound, a valuable example of Barbirolli’s way with the work."
"...Three of these performances are making their first appearance on CD, another inducement to purchase, along with the characteristically fine notes."

"...deeply sympathetic and virtuosic performances in admirable sound, making this a highly enjoyable collection."

"...This compilation is released in cooperation with the Barbirolli Society at modest midrange cost, and it presents an excellent picture of some of Barbirolli’s best work with the Halle in the decade of the 1950s, when high-fidelity was king of the hill. I found it revealing, exciting, at best thrilling, well worth its reasonable cost. Detailed notes and commentary are included."
