David Hurwitz, September 2015

[Gaîté Parisienne] has been a staple of the Monte-Carlo ballet for about six decades, and Naxos has assembled the orchestra that knows it best for what amounts to a brand-new, original cast production, led by none other than the 95 years young Rosenthal. The results are as fresh and vivacious as the music itself—dance-like, elegant, never manic, and never pushed too hard—while the inclusion of the 1953 Offenbachiana effectively offers a complete survey of the great 19th century operetta composer’s most memorable tunes… What better recommendation could you ask for? © 2015 Read complete review

Geoffrey Norris
The Daily Telegraph (Australia), October 1999

"Rosenthal conducts the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra in performances that fizz with fun, sizzle with sauce and lilt with lyricism."

Classic CD, November 1996

"A uniquely authentic recording of this much-loved ballet, tremendous value at budget price."

Gramophone, November 1996

"The Monte Carlo orchestra, long familiar with the work, give their all to the aged maestro, with voluptuous string playing in lyrical sections; and the recording is exceptionally vivid, with the widest of dynamic ranges. Absolutely not to be missed!"
