. . . balm to the ears, with three superb soloists at the top of their form and a recording balance that fully realised "Gurrelieder" for what it was, one of the last of the gargantuan romantic scores written in the aftermath of Wagner and Strauss . . . Jessye Norman is warm-voiced and sensuous as Tove, bathing her vocal lines in splendour without any sense of strain. James McCracken is mellifluous as her lover Waldemar, with no sense of "Heldentenor" barking in a role that stretches the voice to its heights. Tatiana Troyanos is tender and plangent by turns in her big narrative "aria" as the Wood Dove. The massive Tanglewood Festival Chorus have all the rumbustious involvement that anyone could require, and Seiji Ozawa irradiates the massive orchestration with a late-romantic glow. This performance is all splendidly realised by the expanded forces of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This won a "Gramophone" Award for choral recording, and rightly so.
