Notes & Reviews:

a genuine competitor.. The first reason for this may seem an odd one. ... The longer stretches of talk heard in this new recording prove not tedious at all. A second reason for preferring this new version is that the cast, ... is on the whole better suited, character by character, to the roles.Susan Graham in the new recording ... has a younger, fresher tone. If impressing less as a 'big' personality she nevertheless has a vivid way of making the developments real and presentGabriel Bacquier's Somarone is a delight .... Sylvia McNair brings a distinct gain ... - Gramophone
