Notes and Editorial Reviews

...a consistently enjoyable, honest performance, recorded in deep, spacious sound... Stratas's Marie (I'm using the German forms of the names) is firmly voiced and, as always, she acts intelligently... Kollo is strained on top and deficient in legato, but amiable and believably wily...

-- Ralph V. Lucano, FANFARE [5/1989]

 A Front Runner ! October 22, 2014 By Joseph  Erdeljac (West Chester, PA) See All My Reviews "This recording is a wonderful document of this outstanding opera by Smetana. The cast is excellent, especially Teresa Stratas and Rene Kollo. The ensembles are well sung and exciting as are the choral sections. Jaroslav Krombholc leads the Munich Radio Orchestra with spirit and a driving energy that keeps everything moving at a good pace. It is a delight to have this addition of this infrequently performed or recorded opus." Report Abuse
