This recording of "The Marriage of Figaro" can be refered back to 1950. Karajan, at the time a young man, early established reputation as "Master of the opera" . One of his most foremost skils was his ability to get together the perfect cast! The combination Seefried, Schwartzkopf, Kunz, London and Jurinac is simpley unsurpased! I do not beleive we shall ever hear something better! The recording is in mono, but it is excelentley remastered and sounds as young as 60 years ago!
