Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Nilsson's account of the title role remains another towering monument to her tireless singing." -Gramophone

Penguin Guide
Nilsson is splendid throughout; she is hard-edged as usual but, on that account, more convincingly wicked...Of this score Solti is a master. He has rarely sounded so abandoned in a recorded performance...Waechter makes a clear, young-sounding Jokanaan.
