Comments:  This is an album of very lyrical music, played and recorded well.  If you are an opera fan, I think you will like this record.  If you aren't, like me, then you might find this album to be a nice substitute for a benzodiazepine.  No offense whatsoever to Karajan and the Philharmonia -- it's not them, it's me.  This album for me is a sleeper.

  1. Didn't know a second pressing existed of this. That is the only cheap alternative I've come across in my research. Good to know this is not a great one.
