Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The sound on the Capriccio release is... lacking in air, although not enough to disturb the memory of Lisa della Casa's assumption of the Countess. To the adjectives attached to her Strauss singing ("creamy", "sumptuous") add the comment that she creates a really broad and passionate character.
