Customer Reviews

I can't believe how great this recording sounds!

Let's get one thing out of the way first - the soloists on this recording are nothing special. Being native Hungarian speakers, they have a clear, idiomatic way with the text, but their voices are unremarkable. Ludwig, Varady, and Troyanos have all offered up more compelling Judiths, and Berry, Kovats, and Polgar have given us better Bluebeards, but with this recording that sort of thing doesn't matter nearly as much. Alsop has allowed us a glimpse into Bartok's sonic world and what a trip it is. I have never heard such crisp orchestral detail on any other recording (even other digital recordings) and what a difference it makes! From the dissonant violins we hear at the first door to the sparkling gems at the third to the eerie lake of tears at the sixth, I found myself completely engrossed from the beginning and overwhelmed by the end. If you've never heard this opera, start with this recording! If you already know and love this opera, you must have this one too!
