Rezension bezieht sich auf: Rarities (Audio CD)
The little-known label, GALA, continues to surprise: Here is a 2CD-set of long-lost live "rarities" from surely one of the greatest voices of the 20th century, mezzo Christa Ludwig.
The 2CD-set contains inter alia excepts from Rossini's Cenerentola (1959 - Vienna), Wagner's Lohengrin (1967 - New York) and Mahler's Kindertotenlieder (1967 - Vienna) but the real show-stoppers are undoubtedly the excerpts from Mme. Ludwig's famous Verdi renditions of Princess Eboli (Don Carlos - 1967 - Vienna) and Amneris (Aida - 1970 - New York) which to my knowledge were only released years ago on a long out-of-print 2CD from Melodram.
Get this item, put it on, sit back and enjoy almost two and a half hours of a voice like "they don't make them anymore" with a deep and thorough knowledge of the way opera is sung.....WAY TO GO !
