4.0 out of 5 stars Nice CD
Good music well played. Maybe an oldish re-issue but I knew this when I ordered it as a replacement for a much loved cassette.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mildly disappointed
There is nothing wrong with the technical reproduction, as far as my ears were concerned, with this recording, the CD of which I received well in time and in excellent condition, but I was rather disappointed by the interpretation of Dukas' composition, which I felt was slightly pedestrain and lacking in spark. This was in contrast to the work of Saint-Saens which,...

This was in contrast to the work of Saint-Saens which, ironically, was lively.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performances, well recorded, 6 Aug 2014

I have had these recordings on LP (MFP) for 40 years and all the family love them; indeed the original LP still sounds good. Now I have bought the same recording on CD for our grandson.
The price was low but at just under 37 minutes it is rather short measure for a CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Magic recording, 21 July 2009

Dukas: The Sorcerer's Apprentice; Saint-SaŽns: Danse macabre; Rossini - Respighi: La Boutique fantasque
This was the second CD I bought for my daughter so that she could practise her Flute to it. It's got four wonderful old favourites on it. I had a great time listening to the Sorcerer's Apprentice and imagining Mickey Mouse trying to stop the buckets of water filling the cave. It's a great way of introducing children to classical music.
