Hilde Gueden (soprano)

Several countries have their light operas: the British their Gilbert and Sullivan, the Spanish their zarzuelas, the French their operettes. All of these display quite tight-knit styles, but the operetta tradition of Austria, and specifically Vienna, is more diffuse, reflecting the differing styles of folk music found in the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. The world of operetta is a never-never-land of handsome hussar officers, princes and princesses, counts and countesses and romantic gypsies beloved of bourgeois Viennese who would probably hate to meet a real gipsy. The waltz, that most insidious of dances, is never far away. It is a kind of music that demands a special way of singing – yielding, lilting phrasing, often rather laidback rhythms, unless the singer is suddenly breaking into the fast section of a Hungarian czárdás. Artists from other countries can make a good stab at it, but the real thing is unmistakable when we encounter it. Hilde Gueden was the real thing.

Her first operetta studio session – held at Kingsway Hall in London in April 1949, with a pick-up ensemble conducted by Hans May. As well as two Lehár favourites, among these six tracks (CD1 5–10) are rarities by Nico Dostal and Franz Grothe. Two Giuditta excerpts come from the 1957 complete set in which Gueden starred with her longtime colleague Waldemar Kmentt; and their duet from Der Graf von Luxemburg is from the 1965 disc of excerpts. The celebrated Vilja-Lied, from the 1958 recording of The Merry Widow has seldom, if ever, been better done.

Included (on CD2) is her recording with Robert Stolz of twelve ‘operetta evergreens’ – the delightful cover of the original LP reproduced together with another five in the booklet. Josef Krips – who enjoyed conducting music of the Strauss family – accompanies her in two of the composers waltzes and a real rarity is her very last recording. Made with Horst Stein and the Suisse Romande it yielded just two arias: Marietta’s Lied from Korngold’s 1920 opera Die Tote Stadt and ‘Depuis le jour’ from Charpentier’s Louise.

Several of the recordings on the set are released internationally on Decca CD for the first time and this collection, recorded over a twenty-year period (1949–1969) offers a great glimpse of one of Vienna’s greatest opera stars in lighter (but not necessarily less demanding) fare.

“my first choice is “Operetta Evergreens” in which Hilde Gueden is the lovely soloist in selections from Johann Strauss, Lehár, Kálmán, Zeller and others” Gramophone Magazine, December 1962 (CD2: 1–12)

Rita Streich (soprano)

Rita Streich, famed for her peerless coloratura, for her Queen of the Night and her performances of Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann and Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Rita Streich, often dubbed a ‘singing nightingale’ also took time out from a busy career to record miniatures. Several LPs, combined over two (now deleted) Deutsche Grammophon ‘Originals’ are here combined into a 2CD set, showcasing the soprano in popular opera arias, waltz-songs, folk songs (English, American, Russian, Japanese and Yiddish) and lullabies. The waltzes stem from the melodic treasury of the Viennese Strauss dynasty – music of yearning, enchantment and nostalgia, all abetted by Streich’s joyous coloratura. The folk songs and lullabies were recorded in Munich and in Regensburg, in 1962 and 1964. Note-writer Bernhard Uske, describes the result as ‘a glorious carpet of flowers’.

Leichte Kavallerie Overture


Magical melodies and swirling rhythms from the golden age of the Viennese waltz: the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra present a new recording of the dazzling music of Johann Strauss, father and son.

Vienna in the 19th century was a city obsessed by music and dancing. By 1825, the adult population was about 200,000, and the capacity of the ballrooms about 50,000. Both Johann Strauss and his son Johann Strauss II were, in turn, known as ‘the waltz king’, and their music turned them into household names across Europe. On this album, the older Strauss is represented by his ‘Music of the Spheres’, while the attention turns firmly to the output to his son, including his infamous waltz ‘On the Beautiful Blue Danube’ and the ‘Thunder and Lightning Polka’.

Strauss II also took inspiration from Vienna’s obsession with foreign musical influences, and we hear strains of Turkey in the ‘Persian March’, and of gypsy music in ‘The Gypsy Baron Overture’ and the Czárdás – a kind of folk dance – from the opera Ritter Pásmán. Soprano Lorina Gore joins the orchestra for the vocal waltz ‘Frühlingsstimmen’ (‘Voices of Spring’), as well as arias by Strauss II (‘Adele’s Laughing Song’ from Die Fledermaus) and Lehár (‘Meine Lippen, sie küssen so heiß’ (‘My Lips Kiss So Hotly’) from Giuditta).

The album is conducted by the TSO’s Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Marko Letonja, whose experience with the Vienna Symphony, Vienna State Opera and a host of other European and international orchestras brings new depth to this much-loved music.
