Notes & Reviews:
American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Her two co-soloists are modestly winning. The tenor is good with the words and he dives fearlessly for them. The chorus is well balanced and tonally pleasing, and conductor Griffiths sets sensible, snappy tempos and knows how to project the grandeur of the big choruses. The Adam and Eve duet is performed, commendably, without the usual cut. I would have enjoyed hearing this in concert, but for repeated listening at home, I'd choose any of a dozen or so other recordings, starting with Markevitch (DG), the first Karajan (DG), and Frnhbeck de Burgos (EMI) - all considerably cheaper.
