A fine live German performance

(5 out of 5 stars)
"If you don't mind German, and can deal with Fischer-Dieskau, this is a great performance. Fricsay is the best when it comes to Mozart operas. The cast were all premier singing actors and all live up to their reputations here. Pilar Lorengar is delightful. Erika Koth is adorable. Elizabeth Grummer is masterful, Walther Berry is cute and Josef Greindl blows everyone away. Mistakes are few, the interactions among the characters are convincing, and the ensembles are nicely balanced.
This performance was released a while back as a videotape--you could actually watch these legendary Mozart singers perform, although the visual quality was poor. I hope they release it again!
