Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Edited together from the three live performances, the Naxos se offers a lively, incisive account of the five-act version of Don Carlos, with the Swedish Opera’s Spanish music-director, Alberto Hold-Garrido, drawing out the formidable talents of his company in a warmly idiomatic reading. It is the more impressive that this is repertory performance without imported stars. Hillevi Martinpelto, commanding as Elisabetta, and Peter Mattei, the powerful Rodrigo, have both had great success outside Sweden, not least in disc, but the others in the cast equally demonstrate the company’s tradition, ever since the days of Jussi Björling and Birgit Nilssob, in encouraging singers with firm, clear voices at a times when too many ill-focused wobblers are being accepted
