Description
Formerly called Prima Donna in Vienna, this early 1970s recording spans the ersatz gypsy music of Franz Lehár and Johann Strauss II, the chivalric world of Wagner (Elisabeth's "Dich, teure Halle" from Tannhäuser), Mozart's sublimely beautiful aria of lament for the countess in The Marriage of Figaro ("Dove sono"), and the lovely blending of Lorengar and Arleen Augér's voices in a duet from Richard Strauss's Arabella.

"I still love Lorengar's voice for its peculiar lightness, sweetness and ease. She's perfect for the lighter Germanic repertoire on this disc … with Lehár, Korngold, both Strausses and even a bit of Mozart and Beethoven. An aria from the folky 'Der Vogelhandler' is a curiosity —I wandered into a performance in Vienna once and now I feel lucky, because it's one of those operas that never caught on over here."—Buffalo News
