This recording is perhaps Bohm's greatest studio effort. Certainly he was best live--for example his Bayreuth 'Tristan' and 'Die Frau Ohne Schatten' at the Vienna Opera. But this opera never seems to lose pace, and the modest tempi work quite well.

The cast features several of the same performers as the 1968 Figaro, a masterful recording in its own right. Hermann Prey and Fischer-Dieskau are wonderful (ironically, Diskeau is again playing a count) with the wonderful Janowitz and Troyanos filling in the female roles. Both of these recordings benefit most from this fantastic ensemble, and Bohm continued to enjoy the work of these great talents in his Mozart and Strauss performances throughout the 50's and 60's. The tone of this opera is very conversational, and their is a greater emphasis on ensemble than solos (again, like Figaro). --Amazon customer

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
