5.0 out of 5 stars Something of a surprise, 27 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Verdi: Otello (Audio CD)
Barbirolli's conducting is outstanding. James McCracken is the most heroic Othello I have heard, at times more so than Vickers. Gwyneth Jones sings Desdemona most beautifully, without any disturbing vibrato. A wonderful interpretation. This is, I think, a possible first hand choice. (I should perhaps add that I don't owe the CD-version, but still uses my old LP:s. The sound is very good, but I cannot value the sound quality of the CD transfer).

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, I just love it!, 23 Sept. 2011
This is the best christmas record I have heard. Beautiful songs, known and lesser known in a perfect mix. Only the song "Koppången", given both in Swedish and English is worth the price of the disc. I can promise, you will not be disappointed if you chose this as your only CD for Christmas. (It has had an enormous success all over the world, one of Miss von Otter's most sold records).

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware of this edition, 20 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Alceste (Audio CD)
This recording was made when Mme Flagstad was very ill in tonsillitis. She later regretted that she didn't have the courage to postpone the sessions. She herself says in a memoir that her illness could be heard - and it can, all that velvet beauty in her voice is gone. Try the Eclipse version of this work with Flagstad in wonderful form and - on disc 2, side 2 - a little pleasant surprise! There is also her farwell performance from the MET in this opera out on Walhall; I have not heard it as yet, but I suppose it's a good one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very short, 20 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This live recording gives us a very good picture of the artist but it is much too short, only a 45 minutes. That's why I don't give it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot be bettered, 15 Sept. 2011
This review is from: R Strauss: Daphne (Audio CD)
Just a few words: This recording is unapproachable. Everything is perfect, singers, conductor, sound. Towering over all her collegues is Hilde Güden, making what possibly is the performance of her lifetime.


Schumann: Frauenliebe und Leb
Schumann: Frauenliebe und Leb

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this, 12 Sept. 2011
This was recorded late in Dame Schwarzkopf's career. It met some severe criticism and the singer herself did not want it to be rereleased on CD. I am fond of this composition and think it's an enchanting performance. I can not understand the critics. I love this. Basta.

Behind this mysteroius title "Saint" hoovers Simson and Delilah with Vickers, Gorr etc. - and only one disc with excerpts!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great recording, 10 Sept. 2011
This must rank as one of the best recordings of Der Holländer. First and foremost because Behrens here make one of her two best appearances on record (the other being The Dyer's wife in Die Frau ohne Schatten with Solti). She is nothing but magnificient! Robert Hale - a great Holländer. Inspired conducting. This is something for all Wagner record collectors!
