Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording does not include a libretto.

-----

*****

A live recording from Munich's Staatsoper in its 1960s heyday. Della Casa's creamy toned Arabella is near perfect and Fischer-Dieskau a deeply sympathetic Mandryka. Keilberth's spacious tempos allow this glorious score to breath deeply.

– BBC Music Magazine

"Caught live in Munich in 1963, Della Casa is still in shining, sensuous voice. Amid a gallery of overwrought characters, her Arabella is the poised centre of the opera: self-possessed yet always lovable. No soprano on disc has quite equalled her radiant serenity in the final apotheosis." – The Daily Telegraph (UK)
