Format: Audio CD
This 1978 recording remains one of Karajan's greatest; it always was in superb sound but the re-mastering simply enhances the depth, clarity and perfect balance the engineers achieved. Some have resorted to the default position complaint that Karajan makes Debussy sound like Wagner, which is nonsense; while it true that the BPO in peak form contribute a sumptuousness that emphasises the repressed eroticism of this work, it is also true that Karajan insists upon the most delicate and finessed grading of dynamics to ensure that the orchestra never overwhelms the singers.

And what singers they are! The truly peerless performance here is from José van Dam, singing with exquisite subtlety and seamless legato but also rising to the moments of tortured jealousy Golaud experiences as his rage and suspicions mount. The scene where he forcs his little boy Yniold to spy on the chaste lovers - they never consummate their love physically - is truly chilling. Von Stade is perfect as Mélisande: fragile, waif-like, dreamy and vulnerable, her oboe tones suggestive of other-worldliness and detachment. Stilwell is excellent as Pélleas, his baryton-martin with its tenor upper extension conveying both sensitivity and ecstasy; he is more virile than some characterisations. Both Americans sing in excellent French and the supporting cast is first-rate, with that gifted linguist Raimondi as a grave, troubled Arkel.

Karajan captures the rapture of this music and is unafraid to crank up the intensity in the orchestral preludes, conversely, he never swamps the conversational tone of a piece so dependent upon the maintenance of the natural speech-rhythms of the French language and the text is always crystal clear.
