Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Bratislava orchestra plays with characteristic finesse and grace and with glowing lyrical feeling. There is both drama and vitality in this Coppélia. The recording is warm and spacious, with the orchestra set slightly back. Other versions may have more surface brilliance, but most lovers of ballet music will enjoy the naturalness of perspective and the attractively smooth string-quality. La Source comes off equally well. The Pas de fleurs grande valse is a real lollipop and in the two suites the music (selected rather arbitrarily) has plenty of colour and rhythmic life.

Dance Express, September 1996

"...from the opening Prelude and Mazurka right through to the final Galop, you know you are going to enjoy this performance...Naxos has a winner here and the secret lies with Mogrelia..Don't wait, buy it!"

Fanfare, August 1996

"Mogrelia's is now the complete Coppelia of choice..."

Gramophone, June 1996

"When they are as beautifully performed as here, both are well worth hearing complete... these latest recordings mark Andrew Mogrelia's Naxos series as one to be followed and treasured"

Gramophone, June 1996

...both are superbly crafted scores, full of haunting melodies and superbly well scored... They are beautifully performed here, both are well worth hearing complete.

American Record Guide, June 1995

"I would not hesitate to recommend Mogrelia"
