Notes & Reviews:

"This, the third complete recording of Berlioz's magnificent epic, must be the new 'benchmark' Trojans. It is taken from live performances at the Barbican last December, the applause (there was surely plenty - the reviews were ecstatic) having been carefully excised... Davis remains in full command of music which he has made so much his own... Particularly welcome are a Dido and Aeneas fully equal to these tremendous roles..." ***** -BBC Music

bbc.co.uk - Matt Fernand
So what's so special about the performance? Try Canadian tenor Ben Heppner, outdoing his fellow countryman Jon Vickers on Sir Colin's first recording of Les Troyens. The other principals are very fine too... The playing is formidable, revelatory, and the big set-pieces have an epic sweep to them.

Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, March 2014
Davis's second recording of Berlioz's Virgilian epic positively crackles with a theatricality that never sags or falters over the course of this five-hour live performance. Surely one of the finest opera recordings of all time, and most definitely a Desert-Island item for me!
