Notes & Reviews:

A timely re-issue of the legendary 1960 live concert performance in Salzburg featuring a dazzling firmament of legendary singers all in the prime of their singing careers: Leontyne Price, Eberhard Wächter, Hilde Rössel-Majdan, Fritz Wunderlich and Walter Berry. With the great Herbert von Karajan leading the Vienna Philharmonic and the soaring Wiener Singverein, this is a most distinguished performance of Mozart's Requiem.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Price is in fine voice. Rossel-Majden is solid. Wunderlich is wonderful. This is primarily a choral work. The men of the chorus sing well. Also included is the Don Giovanni Overture and Donna Anna excerpts sung by Price and recorded at the same 1960 Salzburg Festival. Overall the sound is primitive for 1960. It sounds like a surreptitious recording by an audience member. The strings sound OK.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Groáes Festspielhaus, Salzburg (08/24/1960).
