Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this gem
This studio recording of Elektra is valuable on many counts, but most importantly, it preserves Inge Borkh’s legendary interpretation of the role in good sound and likewise documents the conducting of Karl Böhm, a personal friend of Richard Strauss’s who attended the composer’s own rehearsals of this same opera in his youth. It is difficult to name any Elektra set a “benchmark” or “recording of reference,” but suffice it to say that this one should be in the library of anyone who enjoys this opera — and it would make a perfectly good introduction, as well.
