Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
Agnes Baltsa is a pert, ultra-stylish Composer...Trusting in his fine male cast, Bohm (in what one may call 'late style') allows the Harlequin accompaniments to become very bar-room - apt, and he's always there to pick them up after showtime. Finally, there's James King's Bacchus, in good form and seeming to have gone even further with his personal investigation of how best to vocalise this not always grateful role.
International Record Review, March 2012
82-year-old Karl Bohm infuses the entire performance with astounding energy...Ariadne's womanliness and glowing passion are palpable here, with Janowitz offering a degree of expressive detail I had not expected...The men do very well...Of course, the show belongs to Gruberova in what was to become her signature role...She has more than sufficient charm and delicacy while also being able to convey the two sides of Zerbinetta.
