This 2-CD set bookends the most successful partnership in the history of English light opera, in newly remastered Decca recordings. This premiere version has many distinguishing features, first among them being a vividly dramatic portrayal of the title role by Peter Pratt, principal D’Oyly Carte comedian from 1951 until 1959. The cast is further enhanced by splendidly rich-voiced, aristocratic contributions from Fisher Morgan as Sir Marmaduke and, as Lady Sangazure, Ann Drummond-Grant. ‘It is this Sorcerer recording that is the only one worthy of consideration as a competitor to other recordings’ Gramophone
