I am a big fuss about "authenticity," so I didn't expect to enjoy this recording. I bought it just to waive it in the air as a horror example of a baritone in what was supposed to be a castrato role. And you know what? This recording is terrific. Yes, it's not authentic the way Jacobs' or Christie's recordings are, but the orchestra plays crisply, the singers tackle Handelian coloratura with skill and gusto, and Fritz Wunderlich is absolutely amazing.

This is the same recording as B00000IGR7 - but it has been digitally remastered so you can actually hear the music and text. The only drawback is that it has no libretto, so unless you get it from other sources you will not know what is going on.

of the few that I know, including Alcina and Ariodante (I do know the oratorios, however). This Julius Caesar boasts
an ideal cast and conductor- it already contains 2/3 of an ideal Cosi Fan Tutte cast
among other assets (Popp, Ludwig, Wunderlich amd Berry). The melodic invention and mature dramatic credibility are prodigal. And one
errs in underestimating Ferdinand Leitner's conducting. He was an esteemed colleague of Eugen Jochum (whom
he replaced in Hamburg in 1947), and later in Munich and Stuttgart-for a recent You Tube also demonstrating his skill, try the Leitner/Andor Foldes Mozart concerto #24 (Leitner
has now recorded four versions of it: Foldes, Kempff, Seemann and an ornament free
Christian Zacharias). And he maximizes the effort of this cast. It is abridged, sung in German rather than Italian and
definitely different from the excellent version of Karl Richter/Archiv. Richter's cast
includes Fischer Dieskau, Troyanos. Hamari, Schreier and Crass. Neither conductor
employs countertenors or women in male roles. One should
own both versions, I think, and just enjoy the glorious singing and conducting in both versions.

likes this Deutsch Caesar. I urge everyone to consider the "same" treatment of Xerxes.
