Fischer-Dieskau's Opera Debut
06/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These 3CDs document a an historic opera occasion - a live recording of Fischer-Dieskau's opera debut. It is also the Berlin opera debut of Ferenc Fricsay who later made Berlin his musical home. The recording was made in 1948 so allowances need to be made for the sound although it is generally very good, considering the era. Nevertheless, the music is exciting and you quickly get caught up in this dramatic live performance. It is no wonder Dieskau and Fricsay went on to become international musicians. If you are into historic opera then this is definitely for you. I've spent many hours of enjoyment listening to these CDs. Thoroughly recommended."
Fischer-Dieskau's Opera Debut
06/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This set of 3CDs contains an important historic document on two Debuts: Fischer-Dieskau's opera debut and Ferenc Fricsay's opera debut in Berlin (to become his musical home). The recording was made in 1948 - so allowances need to be made for the sound. The music itself is very exciting and you quickly get involved in the live recording. It is clear from this recording why both Dieskau and Fricsay quickly became international artists. If you like historic opera, this is definitely for you. I've had many hours of pleasure with this CD."
