Album Summary

>Korngold, Erich Wolfgang : Die tote Stadt (The Dead City)
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Penguin Guide
Die tote Stadt may not be a great opera, but in a performance like this, superbly recorded, it is one to revel in on CD. Rene Kollo is powerful if occasionally coarse of tone, Carol Neblett sings sweetly in the equivocal roles of the wife's apparition and the new-comer.

The Guardian
Erich Leinsdorf's 1975 account of Korngold's Die Tote Stadt...has never been bettered on disc.
