Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lucia Popp sings with poignancy and plangency: this is a sympathetic performance...Gruberová's Elettra has the measure of the music's brilliance, and her "Idol mio" shows the glow of joy which surfaces momentarily... Pavarotti is Idomeneo: enough said. His is a deeply committed performance, revealing the king's greatness of heart and his just raging in a larger-than-life portrait...

-- Gramophone [4/1988]
