Format: Audio CD
Repeated evocation of the word "perfect" in descriptions of this recording convinced me to buy it, and even in the midst of such lofty praise, I was not disappointed. To the contrary; Capriccio is amongst the most incisive and beautiful operas ever crafted, combining the intelligence and perspicacity of a truly outstanding libretto with all the beauty and sublimity of which the mature Strauss was capable. It is an opera for opera lovers, a piece of musical virtuosity that not only delights the listener, but brings to light the question of the nature of art, the source of the profundity found in music and verse; it is an opera about the nature of opera, and art itself. Perhaps appropriately for an opera examining the ideals of the artistic form, the cast and production are here utterly flawless; Elizabeth Schwarzkopf gives as nuanced and breathtaking an interpretation of Strauss as only she could, and there isn't a single element in the performance that comes across as weak. Given the fact that in Capriccio, it is an intelligent and often hilariously mordant discourse on art that attains primacy rather than overarching drama or passion, it is admittedly not an opera for everyone. For those who truly love opera and art, those who are looking for something a bit different and more philosophic than typical operatic passion, despair, and suicide, those who are looking for the perfectly produced version of the perfectly crafted opera--one cannot do any better than this version of Capriccio. Buy it and enjoy the pinnacle of truly brilliant music.

By GlynLuke TOP 100 REVIEWER on 18 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
This miraculous opera, in this reissued mono recording from 1959 under Sawallisch, is so utterly beautiful that I find myself almost lost for words.
I freely admit I have not heard other sets to compare (for example the Bohm) but this is the one I`m happy with, and that`s the way it`s going to stay. There are times when an older non-stereo recording is all one needs, especially with a cast from the gods such as we get here.
Elisabeth Schwarzkopf is, to my ears, perfect as the Countess, paying court to each nuance of this dreamily lush music.
As usual, the ever-reliable Eberhard Wachter matches her as the Count, while Gedda and Fischer-Dieskau are fine as Flamand and Olivier. On top of all this, Christa Ludwig as Clairon simply looks - and sounds - like luxury casting.
My heart lifts whenever I see the name of Anna Moffo in a cast from this era. She sings the 'cameo role' of the Italian Singer, and is as sparkling as ever.
My only slight gripe is the rather unremittingly abrasive tone of the great Hans Hotter as La Roche. His lengthy aria is sung with confidence and muscle, but it is wearying and not a little stolid and unvarying after a couple of minutes.
There are times when Strauss`s lavish, romantic music approaches an almost Debussian
otherworldliness. Once one knows the opera`s plot (such as it is, for this is more of a 'conversation-piece' than reliant on a plot) one really want to simply sit back and drown in this wonderful one-act/many-scene work.
The Gramophone described it as 'a jewel in the record industry`s crown'. They were not wrong.

Great art, sheer ecstasy.

Well, the performance is just fantastic, as you would expect based on the line-up. Perfect music, perfect performance. Well, the remastering is not perfect, but it's acceptable in car and on most home stereos.

I bought the recording because of the 1st Horn Player who flawlessly performs on it. The recording is outstanding anyway, but I often will buy a recording because of a particular artist who performs on it.
