Notes & Reviews:
Beczala is in magnificent voice, even and resonant in tone, with exciting high notes...Isokoski, sounding amazingly youthful, is everywhere a delight. I liked, too, the sympathetic Siebel of Michaela Selinger, and the men's chorus is first-rate.
BBC Music Magazine
A reading of exceptional vigour and dignity, banishing genteel cobwebs and traditional cuts...Isokoski's characteristically pure tones make her a winsomely vulnerable heroine...[Beczala] shows himself a sturdy lyric tenor, with some promise of spinto heft.
