Notes & Reviews:

In February 1995 Deutsche Grammophon released a batch of 25 historic CDs called The Originals, launching a mid-price reissue project whose scope and depth would gradually change the face of classical record collecting. The concept was simple: trawling DG's huge archives for treasures from every phase of the vinyl LP era - many long unavailable or never before released on the silver disc - representing all the company's major artists and most of its landmark recordings from 1949 to 1986, one of the richest periods in the medium's entire history.

Gramophone Magazine, January 1985
Aptly for its subject the sound for Macbeth is a degree more aggressive but comparably full and analytical, with a performance just as committed.

Hi-Fi News, January 1985
Clearly the frisson of a live performance (which this is) has a lot to do with the sense of spontaneity and abandon that Maazel and the VPO engender... DG’s recording helps too: one of their ripest.
