Listen to a Sample:

Pros:

  • This performance of Iphigenie en Tauride (sung in German) makes an excellent case for a Wagnerian scale approach to an opera by Gluck.
  • Even the the staunchest purest cannot deny the visceral excitement of having a singer like Anny Konetzni in the title role.
  • Erich Kleiber brings a perfect combination of Mozartian elegance and Wagnerian power to the proceedings.

Cons:

  • The sound is as you would expect from an aircheck made in 1937.
