Notes & Reviews:

"In a short time, Bryn Terfel has become the Falstaff of choice, so a recording was inevitable. And the Welsh bass-baritone is a force to be reckoned with. Terfel sings the entire role, and he characterizes quite thoroughly. Hampson's hotheaded Ford is the major scene-stealer here after Terfel. Sometimes he overdoes the anger, but how beautiful and secure his singing and vocal acting are." - Mark, ARG

Penguin Guide
Terfel gives a vital, three-dimensional reading as one might expect...the final fugue at a very fast tempo is thrillingly precise, thansk to a team of leading singers who respond brilliantly to Abbado's strong, thoughtful direction...the sensitive detail in [Hampson's] characterization is magnetic. For most collectors this will now be the primary recommendation.
