Notes & Reviews:

First choice, Deutsche Grammophon's new original album series, continues and offers 10 appealing new titles. This is the third batch of 10. Earlier releases have sold 35,000 units!

The look-fresh, modern, easy to grasp: original album covers newly presented in a Polaroid-style frame, Polaroid look carried through in the booklet series blurb on spine "Original Album Series".

Generous presentation: New booklet notes (English, German, French) on the artist and recordings by expert authors and critics. Sung texts and translations are included in the vocal items.

Generous digital bonus content - audio tracks of complete works, not just movements or extracts, video clips, listening guides and original booklets - available exclusively to the purchaser of the CDs.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Salle Gounod, Opéra de Paris-Bastille, Paris, France (11/1993/06/1994).
