Notes and Editorial Reviews

EMI has added...to its impressive range of archive recordings of core works that have been digitally remastered (the sound is generally excellent)... [T]reats in this series include...a low-key, but intensely moving Manon Lescaut with Caballé, Domingo and a largely British supporting cast... Such is the exceptional standard of these five-star performances...
