Notes and Editorial Reviews

‘In a celebrated cast, Gedda, as Hoffmann, sings beautifully and with dramatic feeling, Victoria de los Angeles is a delightful Antonia, Schwarzkopf brings sumptuous creamy tone to Giulietta, Blanc is a splendid Dapertutto, and the smaller parts, mostly taken by French singers, sound completely idiomatic.’ -- (Gramophone) ‘In a celebrated cast, Gedda, as Hoffmann, sings beautifully and with dramatic feeling, Victoria de los Angeles is a delightful Antonia, Schwarzkopf brings sumptuous creamy tone to Giulietta, Blanc is a splendid Dapertutto, and the smaller parts, mostly taken by French singers, sound completely idiomatic.’ -- (Gramophone) Read less
