However, it is now a standard part of the operatic repertoire, and Keilberth’s recording was made on November/December 1963 at the re-opening of the National Theatre in Munich, boasting a stellar cast which included Hertha Töpper, Jess Thomas, Martha Mödl and Hans Hotter, as well as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Inge Borkh as the Dyer and his wife.
‘Keilberth has many good moments, particularly in the lyrical and the quieter parts of the work. […] fine, well-toned singing [from Jess Thomas] … Ingrid Bjoner gives a lovely performance of her difficult part, bringing out the essential lovableness, pathos and humility of the character and rising to all Strauss’s demands […] Inge Borkh is in magnificent voice … extraordinary brilliance of tone, and her overall conception, in all its changing moods, could not be bettered’ - Gramophone, August 1964
