Notes & Reviews:

"Vittorio Gui does not bring a particularly Gallic sensibility to this performance of Pelleas et Melisande recorded at the 1963 Glyndebourne Festival, but he creates a dramatically charged reading that doesn't sacrifice the transparent delicacy of the music. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra plays with sensitivity and passion, and with gorgeously shaded tone. The cast also brings a sense of dramatic urgency to opera, a quality that does not uncommonly elude singers in this work, who can treat the characters with a pastel reserve that reflects the stereotyped reputation of the music... The recording should be of strong interest to anyone who loves the opera." -All Music Guide
