Notes & Reviews:

This live recording from Berlin in 1998 features opera star Mirella Freni with three brilliant newcomers: soprano Christine Schafer, baritone Simon Keenlyside, and tenor Marcelo Alvarez, who London's Sunday Times calls: "one of the most musical and stylish tenors to emerge since the early days of Gedda and Kraus."
