Gramophone, November 2011

The Fritz Busch recording was the first ever of a Mozart opera:…it shows how Glyndebourne’s high standards prevailed from the very start. I remember Sir Jack Westrup, then a music critic, saying that, for the first time in his experience of staged Mozart in England, the orchestra’s chords at a cadence were actually synchronised…

"Ward Marston's fine transfers leave in some of the surface hiss, but one's ears soon forget it, and one is pleased to note the immediacy the voices and the amount of orchestral detail still present."

Robert Croan
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"This CD is a valuable historical document of performances that reintroduced 'The Marriage of Figaro' to the opera-going public. It is also a superb performance that is immensely enjoyable despite its obviously dated sonics. It was a studio recording, restored quite magnificently for Naxos by Ward Marston."
