I don't disagree with anything he says, nor do I feel he has missed any important recordings out ! But I do have reservations about the Solti recording. I know Marc mentions an aversion to Solti above, but I would qualify my own views by adding I think the Solti/Nilsson Elektra to be the pick of the bunch (as did Ralph). However, I remember Alan Blyth once memorably describing Nilsson's Salomé on this recording as akin to a sex-crazed Valkyrie - and I'm inclined to agree. The question is, am I alone with this view ?!
Best regards to all,
