‘This is a souvenir d’occasion of the first ever public concert held in the grounds of Buckingham Palace… Bob Coles’s slick direction captures the spirit of the evening… undoubtedly gives us – the uninvited millions – a better view and sound mix than that which those present experienced. …[an] unmissable turn was the astonishing 12-year-old clarinettist Julian Bliss in Messager’s Solo de concours.’ BBC Music Magazine
