Reviews

‘Oskar Danon’s handling of the score and the orchestral playing in this set are of a very high standard.’ Opera

‘To begin with, it gives us every note of the score … Oskar Danon directs a well-shaped and convincing performance.’ High Fidelity

‘The performance is a real company effort and has the attendant advantage of sounding like a live one … Popović is a splendidly rich-voiced, virile Igor, who gives a moving portrayal … it was a pleasure to hear again Bugarinović’s seductive-sounding Konchakovna.’ Opera
