Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These justly fabled recordings have been staples of the catalog since they were released more than 40 years ago. At this point, there’s no more reason to assess them than there is to assess the Flagstad/Furtwängler Tristan: if the phrase “benchmark recordings” has any meaning at all, it certainly applies here, and in one coupling or another, these performances belong on your shelves. The sound is excellent for the period, too—far more focused than it was on the old Angel LPs." -- Peter J.
