Notes & Reviews:

The distinguished American bass Samuel Ramey, whom 'Time Magazine' referred to as 'a basso of extraordinary dramatic and lyric gifts' presents the Devil in various guises, tempting Faust in Berlioz, Boito and Gounod, as Nick Shadow in Stravinsky's 'The Rake's Progress' and pursuing his diabolical course in 'The Tales of Hoffmann'.
