“The staging is the undoubtedly loving work of a cultured man who knows the piece inside out and wishes to represent it faithfully but whose other duties have prevented his developing any especially distinctive style of his own. The wonderful women, Mesdames Magee and Svendén, however, get there on their own and their dignity and detail are worth watching. Apart from them, and the sexy aeroplane choreography of the "girls from Fürth"... the main attractions of the release lie in Daniel Barenboim's beautifully limned and paced account of the score.”
