 Hoffmann, the long version March 28, 2016 By Brian Lowery (Kearneysville, WV) See All My Reviews "Although there is no definitive version of this work due to the untimely death of Offenbach, this recording has many of the pieces that are often cut in other recordings. A good example is Nicklausse's 'vois sous l'archet frémissant'. If you are a fan of Hoffmann, I recommend this 3CD version to your collection. I have the same recording on the Phillips label, which may no longer be available. Decca has always had good packaging and the price is right." Report Abuse
