Melba's Elan is undeniably a highly agreeable recording of delectable music, engagingly performed and faultlessly recorded.
The equation of vigour and charm is perfectly balanced, and Melba's technicians have ensured the orchestra has ample warmth tempered with pellucid detailing.
As per usual the Melbourne-based company has produced a quality release with informative notes and tasteful graphics.
Here's easy late Romantic (late nineteenth century) listening. Not to be missed.
