Notes & Reviews:

  • Soprano Irmgard Seefried was a magnificent presence both on the operatic stage and in recital.
  • 2013 marked the 25th anniversary of Ms. Seefried's passing.
  • Many of the recordings on this 4CD set have been long unavailable. All have been sonically restored.
  • Her husband and constant companion, the fine pianist and accompanist Erik Werba, is heard on this set as well.

International Record Review, June 2014
What a fresh-sounding Eva she [Seefried in Die Meistersinger] is ... the transfers are clean ... a detailed picture of Seefried's art.

The Guardian, 13th February 2014
There's a freshness to many of these performances that make them preferable to her studio versions, superb though they are...this is a wonderful tribute - essential listening if you already love her work, and the perfect introduction to it if you don't.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
These four discs deserve a special welcome for including so many in concert and unpublished items. Indeed the entire contents of discs 3 and 4 are unissued material; and one must assume that no more of this nature was available, for the final disc times in at a mere 37 minutes. Good sound and sensible notes further enhance a most worthwhile enterprise.
