"Ariadne auf Naxos (Ariadne on Naxos) is an opera by Richard Strauss with a German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal." -- Wikipedia

Gueden is one of the main assets of the 1954 Ariadne, singing Zerbinetta with as much accuracy and a fuller tone than most of her rivals on CD in an attractively insouciant interpretation. As for Karajan (EMI, 4/88) a year or two later and for Bohm in 1944, Seefried is as winning a Composer as any. Schock, also Karajan's Bacchus, is equal to the stringent demands of the part and sings it with panache. Della Casa's Ariadne has inborn grace and musicality. -- Alan Blyth, Gramophone [11/1994]

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...

Hi friend! Can you reupload this marvelous Ariadne? The links doesnt work. Many thanks.

I have no idea why you claim they don't work. All links work. Usually on this site ALL links work.

@ Disinfest: i enjoyed many downloads from your excellent site, thanks for that. Do you have by any chance "Claudio Monteverdi: Vespro della Beata Vergine (Concerto Italiano; Rinaldo Alessandrini)" which is still on Avax, but the links have been dead since 3 years now...

Oops i see... E Parnassi posted on the 18th when the links apparently didn't work, so he requested a reupload, which he got on the 23d. :D

Savallfan, I hope to be able to post the Vespro next week.
