'The opening movement is one of the loveliest things Menotti has ever written' Excellent performances: Koh is outstanding, the orchestra first-class.'
International Record Review

'…one of the finest operatic recordings I've experienced in nearly fifty years of listening… Richard Hickox pulls the ensemble together with a gripping reading that fully encompasses the considerable melodic content…'
American Record Guide on CHAN 9706(2) (The Consul)

'The Chandos recording is clear and refined, making one hope that Hickox and the Spoleto Festival Orchestra will continue their Menotti explorations.'
Gramophone on CHAN 9900 (Fantasia for Cello and Orchestra, etc.)
