Raymond Walker
MusicWeb International, April 2003

"A number of good recordings already exist and one is perhaps surprised that Naxos has joined their number at such a late stage. However, it is more with their interest to add to an established children's series that already offers Peter and the Wolf, Carnival of the Animals, Nutcracker and 1001 Nights (Rimsky-Korsakov), each narrated by a known name. Perhaps Hansel and Gretel will be next.

Of course this recording is not a complete reading of the score, but it does include the nicest highlights....The recording is fresh-sounding in an airy acoustic – the orchestra being on good form and responsive to Lenárd's enthusiastic reading of the score. Angela Rippon's concise narration is dynamically conveyed with interest as one might expect from this lover of ballet. (Presumably she wrote the notes as no credit is given in this respect.)"
