Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This is still a very good and praiseworthy release, principally because of the incandescent performance of Karita Mattila in the title role. The Finnish soprano sang this role to unanimous acclaim at the Met in January, and this recording enshrines her as the recorded Jenufa of choice. Her somewhat cool but intensely colored voice sounds as pure, beautiful, and smooth over its entire range." - Moses, ARG
