Gounod: Faust CD (Michel Plasson)

'Richard Leech as the eponymous hero sings his part with the fresh, eager tone, the easy legato, the sense of French style that it has so badly been wanting all these years. Studer's Marguerite is sung with her customary attributes of innate musicality, firm tone and expressive phrasing. Van Dam is a resolute, implacable Devil ... Plasson and his team restore the work to something near its idiomatic best.' Gramophone
