Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A tremendous rarity! Legendary soprano Birgit Nilsson, best known for her Wagner roles and Puccini's Turandot, is the surprising and surpassing star of this modern masterpiece, Bartok's eerie psychological study of the Bluebeard myth - or is it? The fine Swedish baritone Bernhard Sonnerstedt is the hero/villain and the great Fricsay conducts.
