Winner of the 1998 Orphée d'Or de l'Académie du Disque Lyrique award.

The complete Samson is thoroughly recommendable on all counts.
— Andante
Cura is subtle and inward in the first two acts, and finds a different mode of expression altogether—by turns despairing and forcefully heroic — for Act III (by then blinded, bound and betrayed).
— BBC Magazine
José Cura is quite magnificent, justifying the belief of all those who see him as the white hope of the tenor scene.
— Classic CD
