Notes & Reviews:

"The performance and the clean, transparent recording are in short fully worthy of this wonderful opera...a remarkably fine performance." -Grammophone "...I could use the space for a whole review praising each singer individually - and still not give due credit to David Atherton's understanding of the score and its dramatic flow." - Classic CD
