"We hear little of Cherubini’s nowadays - Mengelberg does it splendidly, with full sweetness in all parts. I like the woodwind especially ... Mengelberg's reading of the Berlioz is comfortable. The sylphs are a wee bit solid for my liking, but very neat, and the texture of the music is well reproduced. The March is first rate. The knife-edged keenness of the lash of it is the thing we want, and that is well conveyed here." - The Gramophone
This first volume of Mengelberg conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra for Columbia Records begins with the Bachs J. S. and J. C., takes in Beethoven, Weber, Liszt, and more, and offers scintillating musicianship from one of the truly great conductor-orchestra partnerships of the twentieth century.
