'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The so-called simplified version of the concert version of the Marche pour le Sultan Abdul Medjid-Khan (by Gaetano Donizetti's brother Giuseppe) is quite another view of the same material, more delicate and less ominously rumbling, but building to a stirring climax just the same.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

La soi-disant version simplifiée de la version de concert de la Marche pour le Sultan Abdul Medjid-Khan (de Giuseppe Donizetti, frère de Gaetano) est une vision tout à fait autre du même matériau, plus délicate et au grondement moins menaçant, mais atteignant à un apogée tout aussi vibrant.

Français: Hypérion

Die sogenannte vereinfachte Fassung aus die Konzertfassung des Marche pour le Sultan Abdul Medjid-Khan (von Gaetano Donizettis Bruder Guiseppe) bietet eine ganz andere Perspektive desselben Stoffes, zarter und weniger bedrohlich grollend, aber trotzdem zu einem mitreißenden Höhepunkt gesteigert.
