***** BBC Music Magazine

"Michael Schønwandt leads a percuasive performance. The Danish cast boasts the sweet lyric soprano of Inger Dam-Jensen and the handsome tenor of Poul Elming. This well-engineered release should prove tempting to opera fans who already have completed their collections of Verdi, Puccini and Wagner" (Courer-Post, New Jersey)
