Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The orchestral playing is truly impressive - aggressive, wildly coloful with finesse and musicianship. Pay is simply heartbreaking in his final line, 'Peter Quint, you devil!', the epitome of innocence betrayed. Felicity Lott - the Governess - the most important role - is quite superior both as singer and interpreter to her Decca counterpart. This is an all-round superior performance and recording." - Parsons, ARG
