"All three characters are splendidly drawn here, Octavian (a winning Ann Murray, not too feminine), Baron Ochs (Kurt Moll) with a rich low register to all but dignify his underlying boorishness, and Anna Tomowa-Sintow a commandingly sympathetic, mature and worldly-wise Marschallin...in the great trio of the third act the three voices meld ravishingly."
(Gramophone)

"Tomova-Sintow is more moving than for Karajan - heart-stoppingly beautiful in the treacherous "Silver Rose" phrase at the end of Act I...With Ann Murray's ardent, much-loved Octavian (new to CD), Barbara Bonney's rapturously phrased Sophie and mercurial conducting from Davis, this Rosenkavalier was well worth rescuing from the archives."
(Sunday Times)

"Moll is a genuinely basso profundo Ochs, with the repartee between him and 'cousin' Resi in Act 1 a highlight...[Murray] blends touchingly with Bonney, and sets the Act II quarrel alight."
