Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album was nominated for the 2007 Grammy Award for "Best Opera Recording."

"Outstanding in a well-balanced cast is Susan Gritton’s Marenka...To have Sir Charles Mackerras conducting is of course a great bonus. He gives the whole performance its character...there is certainly plenty to enjoy and admire in the new set." - International Record Review
