“…Colin Davis's conducting of the London Symphony Orchestra and the vocal forces is so impressive that it ranks with the greatest accounts I have ever heard of this work… Christine Brewer is a great Fidelio, her big voice under perfect control, electrifying at climaxes.” (BBC Music Magazine)
I totally agree with BBC Music Magazine. Wonderful interpretation, superb sound! This disc should be in your library.

Performance:   Sonics:  
I Like this Fidelio and i found that Davis did a good job. (My only comparison is with a vinyl years 70 directed by Karajan .... great Fidelio). The singers, considering the actual standard, play well and everything is well amalgamated.

The sound is, imho, really good ... a bit "dry", otherwise perfect. (tested only on stereo equipment). From this point of view this sacd could be purchased without thinking twice.
