Notes and Editorial Reviews

...DG's excellent CD transfers of Lorin Maazel's fine recordings (423 719-2, 1965, and 423 718-2, 1961), outfitted with worthwhile new essays (different ones in English, French and German). Allowing for inevitable unevenness in "L'Enfant," the casts are generally strong -- "L'Heure" has the most sonorous recorded Ramiro and Don Inigo Gomez (Gabriel Bacquier, Jose van Dam).
