Listing Detail Tabs

Mackerras...delivers a thrilling bravura account of Capriccio espagnol, lushly opulent in the variations, glittering in the exotic Scena a canta gitano, and carrying all before it in the impetus of the closing Fandango asturiano. Telarc's digital recording is very much in the demonstration class.

- Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music 2008 Edition

The playing is exciting but not contrived. The high notes on the violin during the coda of the fourth movement of Scheherazade are unbelievably ethereal. The climaxes are crystal clear, and examples of the best of Telarc technology. People seeking only one version should probably buy this; those already having other versions are unlikely to regret adding this to their collection. The capriccio too is probably one of the happiest versions available
