About this Recording

STRAUSS II, J.: Wiener Blut (Schwarzkopf, Gedda, Ackermann) (1954)

One of the legendary series of operetta recordings produced by Walter Legge with the Philharmonia Orchestra in the early 1950s, this classic account of Wiener Blut features the ideal vocal partnership of soprano Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and tenor Nicolai Gedda, both at the height of their powers. Viennese charm is provided in abundance by Vienna State Opera stars Erich Kunz and Karl Dönch, with Erika Köth and Emmy Loose vividly portraying the two glamorous Viennese spitfires, Franzi and Pepi. The whole performance is masterfully led by Otto Ackermann, one of the greatest post-war conductors of this elusive repertoire.
