Notes & Reviews:

"For any who are reluctant to go near 'Salome' in English I would recommend reconsidering. Quite apart from the fact that this recording captures one of the best readings of Strauss's wonderful score for years, the drama is also communicated with a refreshing directness... Highly recommended, then, to all but the most zealous purists." -MusicalCriticism.com

BBC Music Magazine
... Bullock underlines the increasing insistence of Salome's demand for John's head... and keeps the meaning clear even when riding the orchestra in her love-death. If it were only for the orchestra alone, this would now be the Salome of choice... ineffably paced towards shocking climaxes, diaphanously clear, full of expressive orchestral solos (first violin especially) and naturally balanced...

Gramophone Magazine
Language apart, the distinction of this recording lies in the superb playing of the Philharmonia Orchestra under Sir Charles Mackerras.

The Guardian
Mackerras is not usually mentioned when outstanding Strauss conductors are considered. But as this latest addition to Chandos's Opera in English series shows, he is an outstanding Straussian, and it's his account of a score that, in the past, has been characterised as a tone poem with voices, together with the Philharmonia's gorgeously vivid playing of it, that makes this so memorable.
