Strauss R Salome Birgit Nilsson Solti Deutsche Grammophon 2Cds Blu-Ray-Audio

R. Strauss:
Salome


Birgit Nilsson (Salome), Eberhard Wächter (Jokanaan), Gerhard Stolze (Herod), Grace Hoffman (Herodias)
Wiener Philharmoniker, Sir Georg Solti

Includes repertoire notes by Michael Kennedy (English), Jean-Claude Poyet (French) and Hans-Ulrich Fuss (German); session photographs; notes by producer John Culshaw about the recording and the Decca “Sonicstage” approach, and synopsis and libretto all in English, French, German

“[A] very clear recording of the orchestra … all the detail of the extraordinary scoring, so often obscured in the opera house, can be easily heard throughout … The VPO answer Solti's extreme demands with their most aristocratic playing … Nilsson's account of the title role remains another towering monument to her tireless singing” GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE, 1985

Nilsson is splendid throughout; she is hard-edged as usual but, on that account, more convincingly wicked...Of this score Solti is a master. He has rarely sounded so abandoned in a recorded performance...Waechter makes a clear, young-sounding Jokanaan.” PENGUIN GUIDE, 2010 EDITION

Forty-four years after its initial release, Decca’s Salome holds a leading position in the discography due to Solti’s visceral conducting, and a strong cast centred on Nilsson’s commanding necrophiliac princess.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, JANUARY 2012

Decca, THE Opera Company, has always invested infinite energy and enormous care in its productions, pairing unrivalled casts with its unequalled technical skill and legendary sound. Decca Classics is proud to continue its Hardback Opera Series of go-to performances incorporating true 24-bit audio with two reference recordings of R. Strauss with casts led by Birgit Nilsson and also Leontyne Price’s legendary recording of Verdi’s Aida – all three performances are conducted by Sir Georg Solti

• Deluxe hard-back editions with original covers
• Each edition includes comprehensive booklet notes, and libretto and synopsis in English, German and French translations
• Presented on 2CDs + High Fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray disc containing the complete opera in 24-bit audio
• Remastered in ultra-high quality 96kHz/24-bit audio from original analogue sources by former Decca Engineer Paschal Byrne
