Wiener Philharmoniker, Karl Böhm


"...splendidly filmed and performed ... Kal Böhm and the VPO play the orchestra music splendidly ... Fischer-Dieskau and Prey are richly endowed vocally, and they are sympathetically in touch with their roles. Their singing is incomparable, and their appearance and visual presentation is also impressive. Much the same can be said of Mirella Freni's pert and saucy Susanna and Kiri te Kanawa's autumnal portrayal of the countess ... The record sound is smooth, richly detailed, full of color and presence." - American Record Guide
