Ambrosian Opera Chorus
London Symphony Orchestra
Recorded in 1966 in superb ‘Decca Sound’, these highlights from Gounod’s most widely-performed opera extracts music from the second act onwards. The Soldier’s Chorus has rarely been done with such swagger, Nicolai Ghiaurov is a terrifying Mephistopheles and Franco Corelli a passionate Dr Faust.
‘I like Richard Bonynge’s conducting very much. It is full-blooded and zestful […] the recording is unusually bold and bright, and of that “strong” kind which sounds at its best with a high volume setting, plenty of space – and tolerant neighbours! There is plenty to enjoy in Faust; and plenty to enjoy here.’ - Gramophone, January 1967
