Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Superbly disciplined, Abbado's performance nails its colours to the mast at the very start in a breathtakingly fast account of the opening prelude. Through the four acts there are other examples of idiosyncratic tempi, but the whole entertainment hangs together with keen compulsion, reflecting the fact that these same performers - Sherrill Milnes as Escamillo excepted - took part in the Edinburgh Festival production directly associated with this recording project." - Penguin Guide
