Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (6/98, p.64) - Performance: 3 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5) - "...Dennis O'Neill is a first-rate Turiddu, Phillip Joll an adequate Alfio and the veteran Elizabeth Bainbridge characterises Mamma Lucia vigorously. The conductor, David Parry, chooses convincing tempos and gives firm support to the singers."
