About

Sony Classical is pleased to offer lovers of great singing another ten complete opera sets, drawn from the RCA Victor/BMG, CBS/Sony and Eurodisc catalogues.

From 1979 comes a distinguished recording of Beethoven’s only opera. The BBC Music Magazine wrote: “Kurt Masur turns in a predictably elegant Fidelio with sophisticated Leipzig forces … Jeannine Altmeyer’s Leonore is certainly committed, her exchanges with Jerusalem’s stalwart Florestan are highly charged and the dialogue catches fire as never before … Siegmund Nimsgern’s villain keeps temperatures boiling.” Gramophone praised Altmeyer’s “thrilling tone and a close attention to what the score requires” as well as “the finely wrought but never overheated orchestral playing of the Gewandhaus and the superb singing of Leipzig and Berlin Radio choruses … They are backed by perhaps the most successfully engineered recording yet for this work.”
