"Review by Albert Soletsky
This would have been a notable performance if it weren't for the often disturbing surface noise, the at times extremely distorted orchestral sound (no doubt a result of less-than-ideal recording conditions) and the often up-and-down volume level of the singers (no doubt due to the participants' movements). As it is, one is aware of an exciting performance with all principals in top form, with tempos sometimes at breakneck speed but all things kept well in check by Kleiber. In short, a great performance marred by (sadly) technical shortcomings."
