Reissue Producer and Restoration Engineer: Mark Obert-Thorn.

The reception for the first television broadcast of Menotti’s opera Amahl and the Night Visitors (also available in an acclaimed modern recording on Naxos 8669019) was overwhelming: an estimated five million viewers, the NBC switchboard jammed with congratulatory calls and an unprecedented front-page review in The New York Times. Quickly recorded for RCA Victor, the album became a best-seller and the opera remains a Christmas evergreen, brimming with memorable tunes for both soloists and chorus. Set in 17th-century Venice, Menotti’s ballet Sebastian, the concert suite from which is heard here, was applauded by The New York Times as an ‘unblushing melodrama... brilliantly effective’.

“Naxos marks Menotti's centenary year with a batch of well-remastered reissues. Here is famous Christmas tale for television, touchingly performed, is coupled with a lively ballet suite.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2011 ****

“Best of all here is the wonderful conducting of Thomas Schippers, who finds more energy, more poetry and more pathos in Amahl than any other conductor I've heard: in Schippers's hands it is both moving and adorable, and this Naxos transfer by Mark Obert-Thorn has come up sounding splendid.” International Record Review, May 2011
