Sie gibt mir keinen Blick, sie sagt nicht gute Nacht
Das war sehr gut, Mandryka
Dann aber, wie ich Sie gespürt hab hier im Finstern
“Jeffrey Tate's prime virtue is his ability to convey a score's harmonic and textural chiaroscuro and it is very evident here, though at some cost in sheer Straussian sensuousness...[Te Kanawa] has considerable insight into Arabella's character...It is a shining performance and her many admirers will rejoice that this permanent record of a role she adorns is available at last.”
“Stylish performance under Jeffrey Tate, with plenty of momentum to join up the highlights. Te Kanawa is in her element, finely partnered by Franz Grundheber.”
