6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 15, 2012
Format: Audio CD
All three of these excellent analogue studio recordings were made in the heyday of the 70's when there was still a market for such things; I own and enjoy them all so I thought it might be helpful to make comparison across all three to assist anyone wanting only one on their shelves. I found, to my surprise, that my old allegiance to the Solti set needed reconsideration.

First, all three have great merits and all are in excellent sound although the earliest - the RCA set from 1971 is the cleanest and clearest, with the Solti coming next and the Sony a clear third owing to some slight cloudiness and lack of detail compared with the other two. I particularly like the touch of reverb surrounding the witch's "Hokus-pokus" for Eichhorn and its higher recording sound level of gives more lift to proceedings - as indeed does Eichhorn's conducting, which is the most alert, animated and responsive of the three. Solti adopts a rather grand, Wagnerian manner which is a tad static while Pritchard's literal direction constitutes that recording's greatest weakness; he fails to find the lift and colour in the score so ably brought out by Eichhorn. You have only to listen to the great orchestral set pieces such as the Prelude, the Pantomime or the Witch's Ride to hear how stiff and stolid both Pritchard and even Solti are alongside Eichhorn's lift, flexibility and drive.

Regarding the singing, I was struck afresh by the aptness of the casting for Eichhorn. The contrast between Moffo's darker, boyish Hänsel and Donath's crystal-voiced Gretel is perfect.
