Gounod: Faust / Kiri Te Kanawa, Francisco Araiza, Evgeny Nesterenko, Pamela Coburn and Marjana Lipovsek

Notes & Reviews:

This is the most satisfying performance of Gounod's favorite opera yet to appear in the LP/CD era. Davis has generated just the sense of a live and lively performance seldom found on the rival recordings. He obviously cherishes the work, lavishes immense care on Gounod's felicitous scoring and persuades his Bavarian forces to life the rhythms in a really Beecahmesque manner. It also has one of Philips's most natural, forward and well-balanced recordings with voices in perfect alignment with the orchestra.
