Reviews

‘Keilberth has many good moments, particularly in the lyrical and the quieter parts of the work. […] fine, well-toned singing [from Jess Thomas] … Ingrid Bjoner gives a lovely performance of her difficult part, bringing out the essential lovableness, pathos and humility of the character and rising to all Strauss’s demands […] Inge Borkh is in magnificent voice … extraordinary brilliance of tone, and her overall conception, in all its changing moods, could not be bettered’ Gramophone, August 1964
