Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
Moll is a genuinely basso profundo Ochs, with the repartee between him and 'cousin' Resi in Act 1 a highlight...[Murray] blends touchingly with Bonney, and sets the Act II quarrel alight.
Classic FM Magazine
All the principals were established as specialists in their roles by the time of this live recording from 1995, and you can hear why: there's an impressive confidence of delivery in the more conversational scenes.
All three characters are splendidly drawn here, Octavian (a winning Ann Murray, not too feminine), Baron Ochs (Kurt Moll) with a rich low register to all but dignify his underlying boorishness, and Anna Tomowa-Sintow a commandingly sympathetic, mature and worldly-wise Marschallin...in the great trio of the third act the three voices meld ravishingly.
Tomova-Sintow is more moving than for Karajan - heart-stoppingly beautiful in the treacherous "Silver Rose" phrase at the end of Act I...With Ann Murray's ardent, much-loved Octavian (new to CD), Barbara Bonney's rapturously phrased Sophie and mercurial conducting from Davis, this Rosenkavalier was well worth rescuing from the archives.
