Format: Audio CD
I think this opera is worth acquiring and not just if you are a Strauss completist. As a big Strauss fan, I drew the line at the interminable "Guntram", and indeed that is the only Strauss opera which is probably performed less often than this one, which still awaits a UK premiere, I believe. It requires a big orchestra and two sterling singers and is awkward to pair with anything else. Additionally, its subject matter is rather arcane and possibly simplistic or sentimental to a modern audience; the irony is that it was frequently performed during the 30's while the Nazis were in the ascendant and no-one in authority seemed to find its message of peace, love and harmony incongruous with Nazi Germany's aggressive rearmament and expansionism. The action is set in the Thirty Years' War, the bloodiest period of internecine strife in German history, but the contemporary relevance must surely have been overt.

The libretto gave Strauss the devil's own job; it is a fairly high-flown collaboration between Stefan Zweig, (who, being Jewish, had to beat a hasty retreat but still kept an eye on things) and his librettist successor Josef Gregor. Both were sincere but had less of an ear for drama and dialogue than the composer himself; meanwhile he was typically too deferential to men of letters, just as he had been with Hofmannsthal. I have read some pretty damning things about both the opera and this recording, but have to say that they give me pleasure and neither the opera itself nor Sinopoli's performance is anywhere near as bad as some maintain, despite some mild longueurs, especially at the beginning.

First, the Staatskapelle is superb; from 1992 until his death, Sinopoli inspired what was already a truly world-class orchestra.

Not the best Strauss' music ever but a very deserving recording by late Sinopoli and his team.This "Day of Peace" was conceived during NazisxStrauss crisis because his collaboration with jewish Stefan Zweig,then replaced by livret writer Joseph Gregor.By listening "Friedenstag",it's possible to realize that Strauss didn't like Gregor's lines;in despite of some interesting achievements(the people-choir beseeching for food,the reconciliation between the two rivals commandants))this one act-opera reserves its best music bars to Maria,the only character that has a name(others gain patents,only).I supposed this recording should be a must have to Voigt's admirers;there're another cd version with Alessandra Marc but surely,Maria is just perfect to Voigt's singing and she fulfils a so enthusiastic performance that listener will be intoxicated by her vocal radiance and that big amount of hot top C's on final.Her phrasing over "But a day must come when waiting ends;beloved,I want the truth!I want you!" is one of the most beautiful I heard on discs ever.I didn't like her partner,Albert Dohmen(the Commandant)'cause I think he has a strange vocal texture or,in another words,a rough voice,besides that exaggerated diction on surrender scene.Botha sings well finished his poetical and italianate character and Sinopoli pulls out the best of this score with his fine orchestra and chorus.Like a huge Strauss fan,I think this cd an absolutely unmissable one.

Don't waste your time with this recording, it sucks. The only good CD is the live recording from Carnegie Hall with soprano Alessandra Marc (conducted by Robert Bass).
