"Planquette was less prolific than other operetta composers of his time, but a more conscientious craftsman. This occasionally results in a lack of spontaneity and a tendency towards stereotyped patterns, but at his best Planquette had an attractive gift for rhythmic élan and melodic refinement." Andrew Lamb in Grove Music Online. Item #27978
