Saint-Saëns: Samson et Dalila

James King (Samson), Christa Ludwig (Dalila), Bernd Weikl (Le Grand Prêtre de Dagon), Alexander Malta (Abimélech), Richard Kogel (Le Vieillard Hébreu)

Chor Des Bayerischen Rundfunks Münchner Rundfunk-Orchester, Giuseppe Patanè

Not the most idiomatic of recordings but there's some classy singing here, though one would have liked Ludwig to take a few more risks. Patanè presides over everything with passion.
