Notes & Reviews:

This historic performance of Purcell's one true opera is an example of the prevailing style of the times. It would take another decade for the first 'authentic' performances to appear. Yet this early broadcast helped acquaint large audiences with a work that was rarely performed and almost unknown. For modern collectors, this also serves as a sampling of the work of the renowned Irma Kolassi and Hugues Cuenod.
