DIALOGUE IS CUT, BUT IT'S WELL WORTH HEARING

(4 out of 5 stars)
"While not my recommendation for a sole recording of this great opera, I can certainly recommend it for the superb singing of Schwarzkopf, Seefried, Jurinac, Kunz, and London, etc. All are youthful, accurate, and very fresh. The ladies are especially wonderful to hear. Von Karajan's pacing is very fast, probably too fast, which is very unusual for him. The dialogue is cut, which means that one musical number goes right into the next, which makes one think they are listening to a highlights version. The price is incredibly cheap, many dollars less expensive than the Great Recordings of the Century version also available. If you want to hear some great Mozart singing, and are willing to approach this recording as one would have in 1951, then you will probably enjoy this version.
