Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Ariadne was recorded in London and Solti is impressive. It is an affectionate, stylish interpretation, with the London Philharmonic playing the delicious score with every evidence of enjoyment... Edita Gruberova's Zerbinetta is in a class of her own, finding much in the role besides coloratura; there is a ripe Music Master from Walter Berry and an even riper Major-Domo from Erich Kunz. The young Rene Kollo sings Bacchus with much ardour and the three nymphs are a British trio, blending notably well. Good quality sound...[with] librettos in German and English.

-- Gramophone [5/1992]
