Worth it just for the sublime Korngold
on 8 June 2017
Bought this chiefly for the glorious Korngold:"Glück, das mir verbleib" 'Marietta's Lied'. If only Renee Fleming had performed in and recorded the whole of "Die Tote Stadt". One forgets that this aria is meant to be a duet with tenor, but her lyrical, pure voice is so right for the whole. I can do without the 'easy listening' tracks. I much prefer her operatic offerings. Such a pity she appears to be deserting the operatic stage, but perhaps preserving her voice for concerts and recordings for many more years to come.
