Customer Reviews

An Exciting recording of a very intense opera.

Unequaled. "Booring"? This is one of the great studio recordings of the sixties, and is very exciting.

This is my first Strauss opera.

Although i would have enjoyed just a little less distortion in the loud parts, this was a fantastic opera. I thought that Nilsson was in her prime. As she said, Turandot made me famous. Salome made me rich. Or, is it the other way around??? Whatever. the main thing is, i really like this, and i hope to get more recordings soon. PS. Oh, and Skittles, don't review something that you don't like, just cause ou don't listen to it. I really hate it when people put down pieces that other people love, just to get a rise. KNOCK IT OFF2

The vocal talents of Birgit Nilsson were first recognized when she began to sing in her church choir. She studied voice with Ragnar Blennow in Bastad and later at the Royal Music Academy Stockholm with Joseph Hislop and Arne Sunnegärdh. She made her opera debut at Stockholm where her first important role was Agatha in Der Freischütz, and in 1947 she sang Lady Macbeth in Verdi's Macbeth there. Her first important international appearance came in 1951 as Elettra in Mozart's Idomeneo at the Glyndebourne...
