Our new double CD (SWF 181-2) will be available on Tuesday, February 20th.
An interview with Sami Habra a few weeks ago provided a foretaste of our issue of the Salzburg Fidelio of 1950 on two CDs. This Fidelio has everything going for it - very committed conducting, improved sound thanks to our in-house team of Sami Habra and Charles Eddi, and a superlative cast.
And this is surely the very top of the range - the mighty Flagstad at her tragic peak, a deeply moving Patzak, Schöffler evoking an unusually dark Pizzaro, and the other roles entrusted to outstanding talents: Schwarzkopf as Marzelline, Dermota as Jaquino, Greindl as Rocco.
This 2CD album is offered at the attractive price of 18 €.
And out of consideration for anyone who might like to compare the 1950 vintage with that of 1948 (SWF992-3, with Erna Schlüter as Leonore), the SWF is also offering a package (SWF 189) bringing together the two albums (hence four CDs in all) at the unbeatable price of 24 €.
