Notes & Reviews:

These precious recordings with Montserrat Caballe are valuable not only for Bernstein's advocacy of Strauss on record but also for the Spanish singer's shimmering interpretations - girl-like in the opera, ravishing in the five orchestral songs. The coupling, the famous extended Prologue from Boito's Mefistofele, complete with choral forces, is one of Bernstein's most sought-after recording and is done with all his characteristic lan.
