Notes & Reviews:

Hungarian opera life and its flagship, the State Opera went through a major transformation in the years after WWII. Otto Klemperer was engaged early on, resulting in now legendary Mozart and Wagner productions with a generation of extremely gifted singers who defined the Budapest opera image for decades to come. Later the repertoire expanded, Hungarian opera life became re-integrated into the international scene, and so forth. The 3CD Fifty Years of Hungaroton (1951-2001) set offers many highlights of this important half-century, featuring singers of both national and international importance.
