Album Summary

>Lehár, Franz : The Merry Widow
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The stellar vocal soloists are, then and now, names to conjure with even the smaller roles are well and knowledgeably cast Schwarzkopf shows her seductive side [with a] lovely unimpeachable tone." - MusicWeb International

Notes & Reviews:

The mono recording of this work with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf in the lead role, in the full bloom of her youth, is a special treat, a brilliant, fully realized version of the work that, even more helpfully, manages to fit onto a single mid-priced disc. ~ Bruce Eder
