Notes & Reviews:

"...Until David Pountney's brilliant production for English National Opera many commentators thought 'Osud' virtually unstageable. But then there is the music: a miracle of lyricism and economic characterisation...Mackerras delivers a magnificent ensemble performance: the chorus sings with one voice and the mass of minor roles is flawlessly presented...This performance deserves the highest praise as an utterly convincing, powerfully coherent presentation..." ***** -BBC Music

The Guardian
Sir Charles Mackerras conducting in this Welsh National Opera recording confirms the [score's] musical strength... this fine recording in English brings out its winning warmth...

BBC Music Magazine
Mackerras delivers a magnificent ensemble performance, and the mass of minor roles is flawlessly presented.
