About

“Merry Widow hats, corsets, dresses, cocktails and cigarettes all became the height of fashion.  Sheet music sales rocketed and made Lehár the richest composer in the business. From 1907, the piece was subsequently filmed three times by MGM… This classic recording features perhaps the most famous “widow” of all in Elisabeth Schwarzkopf”  - James Murray

“There is a glorious lightness to her performance; she creates a vivid character rather than just singing a string of lovely melodies … the way she caresses a phrase sends tingles up your spine.” - MusicWeb International

Time: 79:00, AAD, recorded 1953
