No Notes Found.
…[a] warm and involving performance, more atmospheric than any since the composers own… Hickox… is helped by an exceptionally rich recording, in which there is fine bloom on the voices and full, immediate and weighty orchestral sound from the City of London Sinfonia.
The Guardian ‘Classical CD of the Week’

…this is a self-evidently recommendable issue. It is superbly recorded as well
Opera Now

Richard Hickox conducts with a taut ,leanly projected appreciation of the long-spanning evolution of each scene and their connecting orchestral interludes… splendid performance…
