Notes and Editorial Reviews

Never before on record has the sensuousness of Wagner's great score been so ravishingly realized, nor has any previous Isolde so captured the femininity of the heroine: a girl embracing love, passionate and tender, as well as an epic figure. For many those considerations will be all important, and on any count as a performance this comes closer to matching the supreme achievement of Furtwangler in his classic HMV set with Flagstad than either of the other two rivals.

– Gramophone [1/1973]
