Ingrid Bjoner & Helga Dernesch
Two remarkable, high quality recordings of Fidelio came my way this week...
The first features Helga Dernesch at the height of her powers as well as Ronald Dowd as Florestan and Donald McIntyre as a wonderfully sinister Don Pizzaro.
The second features Ingrid Bjoner in the title role with Jon Vickers as Florestan, and Franz Crass as Rocco.
