Notes and Editorial Reviews

Domingo is an ebullient and intelligent Bénédict, and Minton gives the finest possible account of Béatrice’s dramatically crucial aria. Barenboim lingers over some details but moves swiftly to match the singer’s mood: a loving performance with excellent orchestral playing.
