"Whether in terms of music, performance, or engineering, it is a first-rate joy through and through."
Performances are splendid, and, joy of joys, Naxos (at super-budget price!) supplies a track-by-track description of what's happening on stage. Incredibly, no other ballet disc reviewed here does that.
"This collection comes as a surprise and a pleasant one too.... I rate this commendably enterprising and rewarding release"
