Notes and Editorial Reviews

Riccardo Muti leads a tight ship and the singing and ensemble work are excellent. Jorma Hynninen’s Count is quite wonderful –arrogant and handsomely sung – and Kathleen Battle’s Susanna is a treat, making us wonder where and how this singer went so wrong just a year or two later.
