Strauss: Friedenstag - Reich, Townley, Mitchinson, Howell, Bainbridge, Wicks; Downes. England, 1971


Listen to a Sample:



  • If you don't know Strauss' rarely performed Friedenstag, you are in for a treat. It bears all the hallmarks of Strauss' unique compositional style, and concludes with a triumphant, and inspired ending reminiscent of Fidelio.
  • The cast is first-rate, particularly John Mitchinson in the role of the Mayor.
  • The sound is excellent.


  • None to mention.
