Notes and Editorial Reviews
There are not so many recordings of Arabella available on the market, but a performance that I still cherish personally is Joseph Keilberth’s live, stereo recording on DG...and you get Della Casa and Fischer-Dieskau in a similarly terrific performance. I find it has a bit more spontaneity and wit.
-- Bart Verhaeghe, FANFARE
...It is a performance cherishable not only for the shining silvery tone [of della Casa] but also for a touching warmth of feeling... Fischer-Dieskau's rough country fellow sometimes softens movingly in a sweetness not quite matched in the 1981 performance ("Das ist emn Fall von andrer Art", nobly sincere in the Sawallisch recording, is ravishingly lyrical
here). Good work from the Zdenka and Waldner are further assets...
-- Gramophone [11/1985]
