Album Summary

>Janácek, Leos : Jenufa
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Watson's voice is beautiful, lyrical and warm, and she delineates a moving interpretation. Most of the singers, who are all closely miked, have good diction, so the English text can be understood most of the time. This should not be the only 'Jenufa' in your collection, but after listening to the Czech original, in Mackerras's Decca recording or any other, will be clearer and more meaningful." - Moses, ARG
