In 1998, Sir Charles Mackerras, one of the last century’s most versatile and enterprising opera conductors, made a new recording of Lucia di Lammermoor, following Donizetti’s original autographed score and offering a reading in keeping with performance practice in the composer’s time.

Acclaim for the set included the review of MusicWeb “In the eponymous role the Hungarian soprano Andrea Rost is distinctly in the leggiero tradition of light flexible voices.... Bruce Ford is his usual dependable self, singing ardently and expressively.... The recording quality in this version is outstanding and well balanced. Adherents of period bands will find much to enjoy under Sir Charles Mackerras’s ever idiomatic and sympathetic baton.”

And Classic CD, hailing the recording as “Disc of the Month,” gave it five stars and declared it the “preferred version” of Lucia.
