Notes & Reviews:

"...It is a tribute to the artistry of Janet Baker and John Brecknockthat the English National Opera's production of 'Werther' conveys so much of the Gallic flavor of Massenet's tragedy. Yet the real star just might be Charles Mackerras, who conducts this fragile opera...with exactly the right blend of passion and grace...Recorded in performance at the London Coliseum on December 13, 1977, this 'Werther' has that sense of occasion so often missing in studio efforts..." -Milazzo, ARG
