Mozart: Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute) (2CD + Blu-ray Audio)
Deutsche Grammophon presents Karl Böhm's legendary 1964 interpretation of Mozart's Magic Flute, the reference recording in an audiophile remastering on 2 CDs and a Blu-ray Audio.
“Böhm’s 1964 Zauberflöte has long been a strong recommendation. The principal jewel is Fritz Wunderlich’s Tamino, incomparable in its lyric ardour, musicality and tangible characterisation. There is a rock-like Sarastro from Franz Crass and fi ne Sprecher from Hans Hotter. Evelyn Lear is a radiant Pamina, and Roberta Peters has the stratospheric measure of Queen of the Night.” – Patrick Carnegy, BBC Music Magazine.
In addition to the 2 CDs, the album also includes a high-fidelity Pure Audio Blu-ray disc in audiophile 96kHz/24-bit format. The mastering is based on the original analogue tapes. The edition features a 36-page booklet with synopsis and essays in English and German.
