Review "Falstaff is imbued with a spine tingling sense of nostalgia and panache, aided by the New Philharmonia's superb playing and the wonderful recording sound achieved by the fabled Decca team of Kenneth Wilkinson and John Dunkerley. The strings really shine through and I have to rank this version up there amongst Barbirolli, Boult and also Elgar himself." Gerald Fenech, classical.net "This was Davis's first recording of Falstaff...it is full of inveigling and entrancingly vivid detail painted in with a dramatist's sensibility. I am a strong proponent of Barbarolli's classic version; however, this Lyrita disc now stands as my reference point." Rob Barnett, musicweb-international.com
