Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Juan Diego Florez and Vladimir Chernov are outstanding as Almaviva and Figaro. Enric Serra sounds appropriately like the old man looking for a young wife... The real star of the show is conductor Ralf Weikert. He holds the long opera together and keeps affairs moving along merrily. There is a bounce and zest to the performance that sustains the freshness for the nearly three-hour duration... The performance is worth the price... the recording was highly praised when issued in 1994." -David L. Kirk, Fanfare
