Notes and Editorial Reviews
Schwarzkopf’s rapturously tragic Marschallin may be the star of Karajan’s intensely emotional 1956 recording, but with Christa Ludwig’s fervent Octavian, Teresa Stich-Randall’s refulgent Sophie and singers of the calibre of Ljuba Welitsch as Marianne and Nicolai Gedda as the Italian tenor, this is luxurious in every sense.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5)
