Notes & Reviews:
The Penguin Guide
Andre Previn here produces an enjoyable idiomatic account of Strauss's masterpiece. This now goes to the top of the list of latterday Fledermaus recordings.
(Te Kanawa's)... portrait of Rosalinde brings not only gloriously firm, golden sound, but vocal acting which shows her at her happiest and most uninhibited. This is a performance with real star quality, and the fact that her German accent is less than perfect is turned to advantage. She becomes an Anglo-Saxon rosalinde, with the occasional phrase or two of English slipped deftly into the dialogue. Altogether a magnificent set a welcome new development for Previn.
