Strauss: Arabella - Goltz, Metternich, Schlemm, Witte, Pflanzl, Goerlich; Keilberth. Berlin, 1950


Listen to a Sample:


  • Christel Goltz takes a break from her normal diet of Elektras and Salomes to show her more refined side. As it turns out her ample soprano was also capable of some magnificent lyrical singing.
  • Josef Metternich brings folksy elegance to the role of Mandryka.
  • I only knew Anny Schlemm from her character mezzo parts (i.e. Klytämnestra, Herodias) so I was shocked to see her here as Zdenko. I was doubly shocked to discover how remarkable she was in her early years.


  • None to mention.
