4.0 out of 5 stars What a recording!!! April 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This should be exhibit 1 for anyone trying to prove that old-fashioned Mozart can work as well as more historically informed performances. This recording is pure magic from the first note. No one does that overture like Bohm! It's hard to listen to other interpreters after him. Throughout the performance, Karl Bohm is in many ways the star. The listener will hear his unique approach to Mozart everywhere. Bohm lets the music of this amazing opera breath. Listen to the woodwinds in the overture, Sarastro's entrance at the end of Act 1 and especially "Dies Bildnis". It is nearly impossible to imagine them being so well articulated by anyone else. Every note is clear and strong. The music resonates and fills up the ear. Of course, this means slow tempos and Bohm could sometimes end-up being terribly dull. But his style is ideal for this opera of enlightenment and sanity. This is Mozart's farwell to opera, his final affirmative message (in this genre) to humanity! Who wants to rush through it anyway?
The cast has attracted alot of controversy and that is understandable. However, the problems (present though they are) don't really bother me as much as they have some listeners. Fritz Wunderlich is Tamino. I really shouldn't have to say anymore but it is worth repeating that this singer was one of the unique voices of history. He turns a fairy tale prince into the essence of pure romantic love. You never doubt him for a second. For me it comes down to the line "Es ist kein Traum!" ("It's not a dream!") at the end of Act 1. So much is poured into so little the effect is hard to describe. By the way, thinking of his early death is a guranteed tear-jerker while listening to this recording. Lear as Pamina is the chief problem for most. And it is true, she's not up to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of strange things being said... March 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who is familiar with this recording will probably be quite surprised at some of the comments being made by the reviewers... for example that Roberta Peters is singing out of tune. Being a fairly compitent musician myself I can tell you that she is not singing out of tune, only the tone is harsher than many other queen's. The thing that these reviewers also miss is that this is a very reasonable way to approach the role... the music does not exist for the sheer beauty of it, but rather as a contrast to the Mozartian style. Coluratura dates back to earlier Italian operas, and it is no coincidence that Mozart composed such a part for his villian, contrasting it with the ultimate force of good, being Sarastro (again, a wonderful performance). If she sounds cold or harsh, then that's perfect. Is Roberta Peters a good singer? No, but she isn't a bad one either; more importantly, she's a dramtically effective Konigin der Nacht, and even if you never wanted to hear her in any other role (and as far as I know, no one has) this role is perfect drama and casting. Furthermore, Bohm is unquestionably the greatest Mozart conductor of the recorded era (with Krips and Beecham also ranking in). This recording is a perfect Zauberflote, and I can think of none to recommend more highly. It's a shame that Bohm seems to be slipping out of popular view.

As for Lear, she is a good soloist, although not a great one, and suffers more from being on a recording with great performers. The male cast is incredible, and the music is amazing. A lot of your perspective on the quality of this recording revolves around you insistance on what is important in an opera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Böhm is magnificent - the cast, less so August 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is arguably the best-conducted version of Mozart's masterpiece. Böhm chooses leisurely tempi, but they are never sluggish and seem exactly right for the piece. His direction conjures up a magical atmosphere that is only found elsewhere on Karajan's EMI recording. Böhm gets radiant playing from the Berlin Philharmonic in superb form, and the RIAS Kammmer-Chor is simply unbelievable: the best chorus I have ever heard. They must be heard to be believed.
Sadly, Böhm's cast is not on this level, with exception of three singers: Wunderlich, Hotter and Fischer-Dieskau. Wunderlich is a superb Tamino, intelligently characterized and gorgeously sung, and is only surpassed by Anton Dermota (and only by a small margin). Fischer-Dieskau sings Papageno clearly and beautifully, but also paints an endearing portrait of this loveable but hopelessly goofy birdcatcher. Hans Hotter is a magnificent Speaker; his only scene, with Wunderlich, is the best performance of the scene on disc. Evelyn Lear, though, is strained by Pamina's part, particularly in "Ach, ich fühl's." Roberta Peters is shrill in the upper register, and Franz Crass is a coarse Sarastro. The sound is excellent, though and this recording also includes an abridged form of the dramatically essential dialogue.
My recommendation for Flute-seekers is to get two recordings - this one and Karajan's 1950 EMI account. Karajan's is a superior performance but does not include dialogue and is in mono sound. If you only want to get one, I would lean towards Karajan because of the magnificent singing, combined with conducting at least as good as Böhm's.
