This intriguing Forte reissue is simply a straight coupling of two former full price discs that received good press when they were first issued. Marriner excels in this sort of repertoire that allows ample space for colour and intrinsic beauty especially in the loving and melodious Wolf-Ferrari items.

The Cherubini overtures are also vitally infectious with 'Médea' and 'Faniska' amongst the most impressively constructed. The recordings have come out beautifully and the attractive price is surely a turn on for collectors who are new to this lovely music.
