Review By Jim Svejda,The Record Shelf,October 2001

"This famous recording enshrines one of the most vivid and life-like performances of Mozart's darkest and greatest opera. John Brownlee giving the performance of his life in the title role, the canny basso buffo Salvatore Baccaloni as that funniest of Leporellos, the fiery American Ina Souez as an unusually strong-willed Donna Anna and John Christie's wife, Audrey Mildmay, as a lovely (if slightly mature) Zerlina. Yet the real star of the show is Fritz Busch, a refugee from Hitler's Germany. There are many who consider him the finest Mozart conductor of the period, a man whose interpretations combined the wit and brilliance of Sir Thomas Beecham's with the warmth and humanity of Bruno Walter's...This is one of the greatest ensemble recordings.
