Reviews

Maag’s classic account of the Scottish Symphony is remarkable for its freshness and natural spontaneity. The opening cantilena is poised and phrased very beautifully and sets the mood for what is to follow. ... The Midsummer Night’s Dream excerpts date from 1957 and sound equally fresh... Strongly recommended – a wholly delightful disc.
