Listen to a Sample:
It is easy to understand why Gundula Janowitz worked her way into the inner circle of Herbert von Karajan, becoming one of his favorite singers. Janowitz' voice possessed a radiant beauty that made her perfect for roles like the Countess and an added bloom that allowed her to flirt with some of the dramatic repertoire. She created performances of roles like the Kaiserin in Die Frau ohne Schatten and Sieglinde in Die Walküre that are unparalleled for their vocal purity. This compilation is a unique opportunity to consider her artistry in some of her most well-known roles as well as some rarities. It features arias and excerpts from Attila, Idomeneo, La Vestale, Die Walküre, Der Rosenkavalier, Die Frau ohne Schatten and La Bohème.
