Description
"Rare is the artist who offers such individual and wholly conceived interpretations of a character that they strike the listener as completely new, yet entirely true to the music. Such insights, planted by the composer centuries ago, simply await a great singer to cultivate them. In the history of 20th-century performance of Mozart and Richard Strauss, that epiphanic voice belonged to Elisabeth Schwarzkopf." So wrote Opera News when this great Austrian singer died in 2006 at age 90. In recognition of her supremacy as the Countess in Der Rosenkavalier, this set includes a long excerpt from Act 2. Her Mozart is sampled in the "Exsultate, jubilate" motet for soprano and orchestra; the set also includes Puccini arias (e.g., "Oh mio babbino caro"), the "Sandman" scene from Hšnsel und Gretel, and six of DvorŠk's Moravian Duets, as well as a sparkling fountain of operetta excerpts (from The Gypsy Baron, Die Fledermaus, The Land of Smiles, The Merry Widow, and more).
