Bayerischer Staatsopernchor & Bayerisches Staatsorchester, Joseph Keilberth

(now on 2 CDs for the first time)

“A live recording from Munich's Staatsoper in its 1960s heyday. Della Casa's creamy toned Arabella is near perfect and Fischer-Dieskau a deeply sympathetic Mandryka. Keilberth's spacious tempos allow this glorious score to breath deeply.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2006 *****

“Caught live in Munich in 1963, Della Casa is still in shining, sensuous voice. Amid a gallery of overwrought characters, her Arabella is the poised centre of the opera: self-possessed yet always lovable. No soprano on disc has quite equalled her radiant serenity in the final apotheosis.” Richard Wigmore, The Telegraph, 13th September 2008
