Notes & Reviews:

David Parry's conducting has been consistently praised throughout this series, as much for its dramatic pacing as for its elegance and style. 'There's an intensity to the performance that propels it along: the first-night audience was so gripped that you hardly knew it was there...' - Daily Telegraph

Penguin Guide
Bruce Ford's distinctive tenor is powerfully expressive...The cast of women is outstanding...The vivid Chandos recording brings excellent balances between voices and orchestra, with words admirably clear. Mozart's score has never sounded fresher.
