Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
The most luxuriantly Viennese of all Fledermice, with Karajan and the Philharmonic at their most effervescent and a delectable Staatsoper cast, plus a gala of 1950s Decca stars including Björling, Nilsson and Sutherland.

Penguin Guide
The sound is sparklingly clear,...The performance of the opera itself has all the sparkle one could ask for...and the Decca recording is scintillating in its clarity.
