Strauss: Elektra - Tinsley, Schlemm, Card; Seibel. Frankfurt


Listen to a Sample:



  • Pauline Tinsley would have owned the role of Elektra if she had been singing it today. Fortunately this recording preserves her unique brand of brilliance that combined a fiery temperament, a voice of limitless power and a deep connection to ever word that was uttered from her lips.
  • Anny Schlemm is excellent as Klytämnestra matching Tinsley in intensity and playing off of her well dramatically.


  • There is a fair amount of rustling of the microphone throughout the opera.
