Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Penguin Guide
Abbado's tempi are unconventional, but with slow speeds he springs the rhythm so infectiously that the results are most compelling...[Verrett] makes a highly individual Lady Macbeth. Cappuccilli has never sung with a finer range of tone or more imagination on record than here, and Placido Domingo makes a real, sensitive character out of the small role of Macduff.
