Bizet: Carmen (In German) Troyanos, Ilosfalvy, Donath, Braun; Böhm. München, 1969


Listen to a Sample:


  • A young Tatiana Troyanos delivers a red-hot Carmen.
  • Helen Donath's sweet-voiced Micaëla proves to be an excellent counter-balance to Troyanos.
  • Karl Böhm shows the musical potential of this score when in the hands of a true master.
  • This performance was the world premiere of the Fritz Oeser Edition which has since become ubiquitous at all of the great opera houses.
  • The sound is excellent.


  • Victor Braun is a little under-powered as Escamillo.
