Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Janowitz is a shade cooler [than Elisabeth Schwarzkopf], a more objective aristocrat but she is the singer who most often ravishes the ear with her singing, the Strauss soprano par excellence. Schwarzkopf's account of the Sonnet reprise seems one of the most sheerly beautiful pieces of Strauss singing on disc until you hear Janowitz tackle it, in its richer way just as lovely.

-- Gramophone [2/1996]



...The Böhm on DG has much to commend it, particularly his conducting and the admirably lucid way in which he picks out the salient melodic strands in the score...
