"This memento of the 1965 revival features...Otto Edelmann’s incomparable Ochs, a lush Octavian from Teresa Zylis-Gara and a soulful Sophie in the young Edith Mathis. Best of all is the supremely stylish conducting of John Pritchard, who knew how to make the score dance, purr and radiate Straussian ecstasy." Financial Times
