This is a very engaging work that is just so easy to listen to, with a wonderful storytelling aspect to it. The excellent vocal contributions from all concerned certainly help, particularly those sublime sopranos, along with the very sensitive instrumental accompaniments. Everything is well balanced in the recording and it is recorded in excellent sound and in a very benign acoustic.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

I rather liked this LP (I have a CD version as well)
Although they are both on Supraphon and I've owned them for years/decades, I've only just realised that they are not the same performance!  ::)

Actually I've realised that I do own Smetacek's recording on CD as well (there's also a recording on Naxos).

Take a listen to Buster's digitisations and let us know what you think. Link:
