Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in 1970, German television took Fidelio into the studio and filmed the Deutsche Oper Berlin’s production of the composer’s only opera. Karl Böhm, a master Beethoven conductor, leads a performance which emphasizes orchestral clarity and emotional depth. The conductor leads a strong cast headed by the glorious Gwyneth Jones and powerful James King in the starring roles. First time on DVD! "Gwyneth Jones sang a passionate Leonore... James King was a Florestan on the summit of his vocal expression." (Berliner Morgenpost)
