Synopsis

Album Description
Historical recording of the opera's world premiere in 1951, conducted by Igor Stravinsky himself. "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 Cuénod's comically virtuosic Sellem." -- All Music Guide
