Notes & Reviews:

Ludwig's range of repertoire was remarkable, from Bach through Mozart to Brahms, Mahler and Strauss. She was equally at home in German Lieder, French melodies, and the great operatic roles. This set starts with a good selection of Lieder by Brahms, Schumann, Schubert, Mahler, Reger, Wolf and Strauss; continues with a program of French, Russian, and Italian songs; and ends with a representative choice from some of her greatest operatic recordings, not least of which is the incomparable Act Three conclusion to Strauss' 'Rosenkavalier' with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Teresa Stich-Randall.
