Notes & Reviews:

"This 'Nozze di Figaro' is one of the great versions in the catalogue...one cannot help but admire the grand classical manner, the flexibility, the homogeneity, the nervous tension...and Janowitz is exceptional." -Repertoire

Gramophone Magazine
As with many conductors of his generation, Karl Böhm had a now-unfashionable liking for a rallentando at the end of an aria, but that pales into insignificance alongside the many virtues of his conducting. The cast is splendid

Gramophone Magazine
Boehm's version of Figaro is...among the most consistently assured performances available. The women all sing most beautifully...Fischer-Dieskau gives his dark, sharply defined reading of the Count's role. All told, a great success, with fine playing and recording, here impressively remastered.
