Beethoven: Leonore (In English) - Tinsley, Beresford, Bailey, Garrard; Mackerras. London, 1970
Listen to a Sample:
- As if performances of Leonore weren't rare enough, this one has the added distinction of being in English.
- Pauline Tinsley brings enormous heft to the title role, and relishes the coloratura passages which didn't make it into Beethoven's final cut.
- Norman Bailey is excellent as Pizzaro as is Don Garrard as Rocco.
- A young Robert Lloyd makes cameos as Don Fernando and the second prisoner.
- None to mention.
