Reviews

‘I like Richard Bonynge’s conducting very much. It is full-blooded and zestful … the recording is unusually bold and bright, and of that “strong” kind which sounds at its best with a high volume setting, plenty of space – and tolerant neighbours! There is plenty to enjoy in ‘Faust’; and plenty to enjoy here.’ Gramophone
