About

The full grandeur, passion and nobility of Saint-Saëns’ biblical drama is embodied in the interpretations of two supreme singers of their era, Jon Vickers and Rita Gorr – as remarkable for their powerful personalities as for their vocal splendour – and of conductor Georges Prêtre. Idiomatic style is further guaranteed by Ernest Blanc as the High Priest of Dagon, the orchestra of the Paris Opéra and, as both oppressed Hebrews and exultant Philistines, the Chœurs René Duclos.
