von Flotow: Martha - Lipp, Kmentt, Böhme, Plumacher; Gierster. München, 1955


Listen to a Sample:


Even thought the most famous aria "Ach so fromm" more often than not is excerpted in Italian, this opera is quintessentially German.  This recording benefits from a quintessentially German cast.   Wilma Lipp sings the title role with Mozartian beauty.  Waldemar Kmentt brings even more Mozart to Lionel and phrases the aforementioned aria beautifully.  The sound is excellent.
