Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress (In German) - Rothenberger, Kmentt, Wächter, Little, H. Konetzni; Danon. Wien, 1965
Listen to a Sample:
- A spectacular presentation of The Rake's Progress courtesy of the Wiener Staatsoper.
- Waldemar Kmentt's lyric exuberance coupled with his stentorian reserves make him an ideal Tom.
- Anneliese Rothenberger is ravishing as Anne.
- Though not a true bass, Eberhard Wächter brings dashing malevolance to the role of Nick Shadow.
- Additional kudos go to Vera Little as Baba the Turk, and Hilde Konetzni as Mother Goose.
- None to mention
