This is a Tower Japan remaster/release of the 1965 EMI recording and it is excellent. Beautiful, clear, clean transfer. The original sound (I used to have the old EMI CD pressing) was extremely bright, headache inducing. Tower manages to scale that down a bit, without losing any clarity. The voices are forward; with a cast like this one, that's not a bad thing. The Rome Opera orchestra is not mere accompaniment either. Overall this is a very exciting and welcome release.

(A highlights LP of this set was my very first purchase, having been inspired by the ROHCG production that I was lucky enough to have been taken to see by my school. Still sends shivers down my spine, the way that unamplified voices, instruments could pin me to the back of my seat. That production sealed my conversion to "art" music!)

Nice story John, many orchestras now recognise the vital importance of working with schools and young people in general in their outreach programmes.

Our own local BSO is extensively involved in outreach programmes across the South & South West of the UK and has just formed the World's First Professional Disabled-Led Ensemble.
