Notes & Reviews:

"The late de Fabritis in what proved to be his swan-song for the gramophone, enters fully into the spirit of the piece, balancing carefully its poetic and dramatic images, emphasizing subtly the quaint beauty of Boito's scoring, the Devil rightly receives the most imposing interpretation... Nicolai Ghiaurov... has a high old time portraying the evil/jolly fellow, all his solos delivered with the vocal equivalent of the leering smile." - Gramophone
