Nos. 0461 – 0483 are choice 7” 45rpm discs – all as New:



0461. PETER USTINOV (Voices & Noises of …): Phoney Folk-Lore (Uttered by the Composer) / w.Antony Hopkins (Harpsichord): Mock Mozart (Ustinov-Hopkins). Parlophone M8P6012, recorded 13 Nov., 1952. Exceedingly elusive & delightful! MB 20

“The send-up Mock Mozart by Peter Ustinov was one of various acts of genius that the ‘fiendishly clever’ playwright-actor created in collaboration with composer Antony Hopkins (and Dudley Moore) for a BBC TV Series Ustinov Ad Lib. Ustinov’s uncanny talent for imitating noises, instrumental and otherwise, created a Mozartean pastiche that only the most puritan of puritans could fail to enjoy.”


- Peter Gammond, THE BLUFFER’S GUIDE TO MUSIC
