Notes & Reviews:

Axel an der Himmelstur, Ralph Benatzky’s (1884-1957) operetta that had its premier in 1936, made an overnight star of soprano Zarah Leander, cast to play and sing the role of Hollywood star Gloria Mills. Over two decades later, in 1958, Ms. Leander recorded the operetta complete in Vienna with Heinz Sandauer conducting; this version is heard here in a 24Bit/96kHz re-mastered edition. As a bonus Walhall has added the remaining recordings from the first release of this score in 1937.
