Notes and Editorial Reviews

This title does not contain a libretto.

-----

"A strong vote for Bernstein’s much-debated 1973 recording of Bizet’s “Carmen,” with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the great Marilyn Horne in the title role. Bernstein’s daringly slow tempos, though criticized by some, are revelatory. Ms. Horne’s “Habanera” is all the more seductive for its reined-in pacing and sultry phrasing." -- Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
