There is already one version of Bassariden in the catalogue, a Berlin Radio performance from 1991 conducted by Gerd Albrecht, and that remains the one to buy. But this Orfeo recording of the Salzburg premiere, conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi...differs from the version conducted by Albrecht in one important respect: the third part of the opera, the lengthy slow movement in Henze's scheme, was originally interrupted by a lighter, distinctly camp intermezzo. By the time of the Albrecht recording, Henze had decided to remove it from the score, and so this recording is the only chance to hear the omitted passage. - Guardian
