“Unless one is allergic to the mono sound, at Eloquence price anyone can afford this disc – either as a first foray into this repertoire or as a complement to other versions.”
“Dennis Brain's horn playing is magical...with Peter Pears superb in both these works, fresher than in the famous stereo versions under the direction of the composer. Goossens's conducting cannot be faulted - it is highly sensitive and strikingly alert - and the Decca sound is exceptionally good for its period.”
