Recorded live at the Lucerne Festival 2010, this Fidelio is led by legendary conductor Claudio Abbado, and stars Jonas Kaufmann.

“Abbado and his hand-picked Lucerne orchestra certainly do not disappoint here, as Beethoven’s epic score is delivered with drama and incandescence...” (The Sunday Times)

“Jonas Kaufmann’s first note alone is a good reason to buy this new recording of Beethoven’s stirring opera.... The effect makes your jaw drop, your pulse pause, your hairs stand on end.... Abbado conducts with magisterial but selfless understanding. In the overture alone (Beethoven’s punchy fourth version is used) you feel electricity and humanity in every jabbing rhythm and lyrically sculptured phrase." (The Times)
