Notes & Reviews:

"Decca's magnificent recording amply confirms the view that this is Korngold's masterpiece, musically even richer than his better known opera Die tote Stadt. The opening prelude, with its exotic harmonies and heavenly choir, will seduce anyone with a sweet tooth. John Mauceri draws glorious sonds from the orchestra, and the cast is headed by three outstanding singers, the soprano Anna Tomowa-Sintow at her richest, an impressive American Heldentenor, John David de Haan, as the Stranger and Hartmut Welker as the Ruler."-The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs
