Album Summary

>Nielsen, Carl : Saul og David (Saul and David), opera, FS 25
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Saul and David is one of the two great operas by Denmark's greatest composer, Carl Nielsen, and this 1972 performance in Copenhagen under the legendary Jascha Horenstein was one of that conductor's last recorded legacies. A great cast is headed by Boris Christoff, considered by many the greatest operatic bass of the 20th century after Chaliapin.
