Wonderful performance


This is one of the great recordings and most of the cast formed the basis for classic Salzburg performances in the 1960s. Schwarzkopf, in ravishing voice, is deeply moving as the Marchallin, while the great Christa Ludwig is magnificent as Octavian. And all for three credits!

download manager for these very long tracks


I have tried to download this about 6 times now but the download manager keeps freezing at the end of each download. Has anyone else had this extremely frustrating problem??

3 Credits for an all-time classic


This is the same recording as exists in EMI's Great Recordings of the Century series. What you loose is 20 or 30 index points (making it easier to navigate). What you gain is £25.99! The recording divides reviewers, some who believe it is one the best recordings of any opera ever, some who believe it is a travesty (slow tempi, don't like Karajan / Schwartzkopf). For 3 credits, you can make up your own mind - but, for me, if you are unmoved by this recording, you should perhaps be checking for a pulse ...
