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

-- Gramophone [11/1985]
