Notes & Reviews:
These distinguished recordings featuring star soloists and Leonard Bernstein in some of his favourite repertoire have not been available internationally for several years. Montserrat Caballé is one of the most famous sopranos of our time, while the disc is also a fine memento of the great Bulgarian bass Nicolai Ghiaurov (1929-2004).
BBC Music Magazine
A luscious Straussfest, though Caballé's voice suits Salome better than the high-ranging songs. In the Boito extract, slow but thunderously awesome, Ghiaurov's sardonic demon rails at the majestic chorus.
