Reviews

‘This 1950 ‘Fledermaus’ has consistently rated at the top of all performances. Clemens Krauss is simply the finest-ever conductor of the Viennese waltz genre. There is a joie de vivre here, despite the grimness of life in occupied Vienna in 1950, that hasn’t been equalled elsewhere. Also, the soloists are among the finest Vienna has produced and are all first-class.’ Fanfare magazine, Nov/Dec 1992
