Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Kollo and Behrens are excellently matched as the hero and heroine, and Meven is a splendidly swarthy Caspar. The recording, which respects Kubelik's attention to so much of the detail of the score, comes up excellently on CD, not least when the engineers run amok to great effect with all the spookery of the Wolf's Glen. Cordially recommended." -- John Warrack, Gramophone (9/1986) "Kollo and Behrens are excellently matched as the hero and heroine, and Meven is a splendidly swarthy Caspar.
