Album Reviews

Mehta's Oberon is one of the main reasons for choosing this disc: his is by far the most powerful casting in this role since James Bowman...a delectable Dream.
BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

Mehta - his voice unearthly, sensual and hinting throughout at deep depravity beneath the surface beauty - gives one of the greatest performances you will ever hear.
The Guardian, June 2006

Mehta's Oberon is the collectors' item...he sounds quite unlike any previously recorded Oberon, but his rich dark timbre does recall that of the role's creator at Covent Garden [Russell Oberlin].
