I usually like to bring into my reviews some element of comparison with other recordings but have to admit that in this case I have remained satisfied with this vintage classic despite its now being over fifty-five years old at the time of reviewing. The only other recording which competes is that of excerpts from this opera in the lovely "Strauss Heroines" recital by Renée Fleming, Susan Graham and Barbara Bonney (se my review Renée Fleming - Strauss Heroines / Bonney, Graham, Eschenbach).

I am prompted to relisten and review by the passing of the great Lisa della Casa on 10th December, aged 93. She is here 38 years old and in her prime, her silvery, fluid voice soaring over the orchestra and only rarely compromised by a certain lack of body in her middle voice or lower register. She is partnered by a cast close to ideal, featuring stalwarts on the Viennese scene in the 50's; I cannot imagine being able to assemble such an array of "house" talent today. Hilde Gueden always excelled in Strauss (c.f. her live Salzburg Festival "Daphne" under Böhm): impetuous, impassioned and secure of intonation even in the high reaches of the travestito role of Zdenka. South African Grande Dame Mimi Coertse has fun and copes admirably with the absurd yodelling coloratura of "Die Fiakermilli" (cabwoman). Ira Malaniuk is expressive and rich-voiced as the harassed mother and Otto Edelmann equally characterful and firm of voice as the impecunious father desperate to marry off the beautiful Arabella into money.

This was ordered as a gift for my wife. She very much likes this opera and enjoyed the performances on the recording.

This is a good bargain IF you already have the libretto or don't need one. I've noticed more and more "bargain" CD sets don't have a libretto. This remastered CD set is a classic and the sound is outstanding, BUT if someone needs the libretto and has to order and pay for it separately - it's not a bargain. My recommendation is to order the more expensive set with the libretto - while it's still available. The Abbado "Boris Godunov" has just been released in a discount version. I strongly suspect the libretto is missing from this set too!!! Buyer beware ...........
