Humperdinck: Hänsel und Gretel

Notes & Reviews:

"The casting of a mezzo-soprano, as Humperdinck intended, rather than a soprano in the part of Hansel, means that there is more differentiation of voice here than in the Columbia (Karajan) disc...Rita Streich is very well cast as Gretel....That admirable artist Res Fischer is a much better witch than Columbia's Else Scharhof, really sings all of her part, instead of mouthing it, and is more sinister." - Gramophone

International Record Review
Streich is a lovely, vocally sparkling Gretel and Lehmann conducts with a sure sense of theatrical pacing.
