CD Reviews

Surprise, there are more rarities here than chestnuts
Santa Fe Listener | Santa Fe, NM USA | 10/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"EMI owns a wealth of classic recordings by Christa Ludwig, most of it constantly recycling. Here they do us a favor and duplicate a 4-CD set from French EMI, now out of print, entitled "Les introuvables de Christa Ludwig." I don't think this material is actually undiscovered, but since a good deal is form the Fifties and early Sixties, it's wonderful to have in back in print at a super-bargain price. the fifth Cd is operatic, and it inncludes all the chestnuts, with heavy emphasis on Ludwig's classic Oktavian oppoiste Schwarzkopf in Der Rosenkavalier under Karajan.

Anything form her peak years comes with an automatic recommendation, but more serious collectors may be interested in a complete program listing with recording dates, as follows:
