“Former Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra maestro Gerard Schwarz, with musicians from his new base in Seattle, has performed [Brundibar] in a professional quality version of which this is an excellent recording. It's a great work of art and, believe me, fun to listen to as well as something that demands to be known.”
