HD-Vinyl Mono 24/96 (EMI) Johann Strauss – Die Fledermaus (Gedda, Schwatzkopf, Karajan)

Thank you Trottar
for this
Schwarzkopf, Gedda, Streich, Krebs, Kunz, et. al, all sparkle here in their roles, even in the dated sound world that EMI was able to present (under Legge and von Karajan) in what was (and still is, really) known as “Glorious”. Everyone here is spot on and authoritatively sung with great style and execution, which means of course “great fun” for us to listen to (and surely they had a grand time recording it also)! Suffice to say, though, that this is one of the very few recordings that remain at the top of the selection list for this wonderful comic operetta, J. Strauss’s crowning achievement. It’s a Keeper, for sure, and well worth seeking out.
