Notes & Reviews:

This is the premiere recording in English of Donizetti's sparkling comic opera. Conductor David Parry has been unanimously praised for his direction throughout the Opera in English series, and his recent recording of La boheme has received rave reviews.

The Times
Barry Banks as Ernesto, a performance to compare favourably with those by foreign tenors who have a wider but not necessarily more justified international reputation.

BBC Music Magazine
Andrew Shore's ripe buffo-baritone is ideally suited to Pasquale. A thoroughly delightful performance.
