Wagner: Der fliegende Holländer (In English) - Bailey, Jones, Dean; Lloyd-Jones. London, 1975. BONUS: Gwyneth Jones sings "Ch'io mi scordi di te?"
Listen to a Sample:
- In the title role, Norman Bailey delivers fire and brimstone, without ever sacrificing the warmth and beauty of his baritone.
- The stand-out of the performance is without question the Senta of Gwyneth Jones. Jones finds a remarkable balance between fearless (and thrilling) vocalism, and the kind of delicate singing you would expect from a role like Leonore in Fidelio, or for that matter Leonora in Il Trovatore.
- The sound is slightly muffled, obscuring the English translation slightly, but thankfully not the quality of these amazing voices.
