1001 Classical recordings you must hear before you die (1901-1950)
"... Charles Mackerras's ... long knowledge of the score has flowered into the richest account of it he has yet given ... he draws wonderful playing from the Vienna Philharmonic ... it is an outstanding operatic recording by any standards ... there is an understanding between conductor and singer, in the collaboration between Mackerras and Miss Söderström that articulates this beautiful and touching opera with unfailing eloquence." Gramophone
