IL CASTELLO DI BARBABLU (A Kékszakállú herceg vára)
Barbablu – Walter Berry
Judith - Christa Ludwig
London Symphony Orchestra
Registrazione in studio / studio recording, London 1965
"The two protagonists are superb, Christa Ludwig in particular...Her high C at the opening of the fifth door indicates that she had nothing to fear from the competition...[Berry] offers an equally compelling, intelligent take on the enigmatic title character, and István Kertész's conducting is as idiomatic as one could wish. In short, this is a classic performance of a great work, one that in many ways has never been surpassed"
"Kertész shapes the music admirably, and Walter Berry makes an appropriately compassionate Bluebeard (as opposed to Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau on DG, who is altogether too menacing); but neither Berry, nor, for all the beauty of her tone, Christa Ludwig sound idiomatically Hungarian."
