Notes & Reviews:

"All of the soloists are well above average in quality. Conductor Bertrand de Billy gives a flawless performance that is well recorded...The notes are good. Full German texts are supplied but no English translations...This is a fine alternative to the 1814 version that is now so familiar."-American Record Guide

"The performance is excellent...De Billy gets thrilling playing from the ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien...The Arnold Schoenberg Choir sings with accuracy and feeling. All Fidelio and Beethoven fans will need this." -International Record Review

"from the first notes of the Leonore No. 2 Overture, Bertrand de Billy creates lively dramatic tension...Brigitte Geller is a bright-eyed Marzelline, Peter Rose a sympathetic and nicely characterised Rocco. As Florestan, Kurt Streit offers vocal clarity and resilience in his deeply affecting portrayal...The Arnold Schoenberg Choir show characteristic discipline in their delivery." -BBC Music***

"Camilla Nylund is an exciting Leonore, and if her voice loses bloom at the top, her strength and power are still impressive. Kurt Streit brings touching vulnerability to the role of her husband, and de Billy's conducting is suitably fiery." -Classic FM***
