Reviews

‘It is a vivid and feeling account of the work and I enjoyed it enormously.’ Gramophone

‘This spirited performance, well recorded, completely outdistances the now ancient [Bolshoi 1937] version.’ High Fidelity

‘This is a lovable performance … The intimate Chekovian atmosphere of the opening scenes is keenly felt with the voices well balanced as a team.’ Opera
