Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Stefan Soltesz (conductor) & Nikolaus Lehnhoff (stage director)

Denoke wins her place in the sun as a lithe if hardly sex-kittenish Salome. She has an expressive, secure and slightly dark-timbred voice...Held is a physically and vocally powerful prophet...It's... More…
