Notes & Reviews:

"Ruth Ann Swenson's Juliette sails through the coloratura with right illusion of effortlessness. The vivacious Susan Graham absolutely runs away with the role of the page Stephano. Leonard Slatkin's conducting maintains a well-judged pace. He shapes the phrases with exactly the right grace, and conjures up considerable warmth from the Munich players without obscuring Gounod's lighter textures. A first rate recording. ***** Classic CD
