One of the rarer and lesser-known titles of conductor Howard Mitchell and the National Symphony Orchestra in brief orchestral showpieces / transcriptions for orchestra, all brought off with great poetry and panache.
Minor wear to lower-right corner and a slight crease to the front panel; no splits, else fine.
Incidentally, the engaging cover art is by Mike Ludlow.
