The UK premiere of Idomeneo was given at Glyndebourne in 1951, the 1964 revival, from which this recording comes, was directed by Peter Ebert with John Pritchard conducting, as he had done for the previous five revivals. This recording allows Janowitz and Pavarotti to be heard before their respective international careers took off.
