|'This electrifying performance has been captured in sound that is exceptionally full-bodied, and it also has great immediacy. I very much welcome a recording in English – especially such clear English – but this new set enshrines an account that is altogether exceptional irrespective the language... The cast led by Barker’s stunning Emily Marty, is superb, and Charles Mackerras has probed ever deeper into this astonishing work. The result is one of the great Janacék opera sets.'
