Carl Maria Giulini was known for his unique way of interacting with an orchestra. He said of himself that it wasn't his intention to enforce authority, but to "arrive at human contact" with the musicians. It is this very spirit that makes the present recording a virtual treat for music lovers, uniting the legendary conductor, and the superb Philharmonia Orchestra & Chorus and the four soloists, soprano Ilva Liguabue, mezzo-soprano Grace Bumbry, tenor Sándor Kónya and bass Raffaele Arié, in a wonderful and dramatic performance
