John P McKelvey
American Record Guide, March 2012

Kirsten Flagstad and Melchior are in a class by themselves. They manage all the difficulties, and there are lots of them. In Götterdämmerung at Siegfried’s departure, Flagstad easily hits the high A at the final ‘Heil’ at the end of her vocal line—on pitch and like a ton of bricks in force. Nilsson could come close, but nobody around at present can even approximate her intensity or perfect intonation. Her vibrato is not excessive and is well controlled. She was phenomenal…and the San Francisco orchestra is quite good.

[Ormandy’s] great orchestra plays it splendidly. Both Flagstad and Melchior are in top form and the result is a truly superior performance… © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
