About the album

Though it is exciting to hear Elisabeth Schwarzkopf as the original Anne Trulove and Robert Rounseville as Tom Rakewell, the most fascinating performances to follow are Otakar Kraus' suavely diabolical (if thickly accented) Nick Shadow, Jennie Tourel's delightfully grotesque Baba the Turk, and Hughes Cunod's comically virtuosic Sellem.'
