Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Strauss / Leonie Ryzanek / Maureen Forrester / Ute Winzing / Patric Fontanarosa / Regis Pasquier - Elektra Elektra
Opera Used - LP RP 12420/421 Rodolphe / Harmonia Mundi
1984 French 2LP Laminated Gatefold Stereo Original. Both LPs Appear New, Unplayed. Christof Perick Conducting The Orchestre National De France. Features Leonie Ryzanek, Maureen Forrester, Ute Winzing And Others. The Great Patrice Fontanarosa And Regis Pasquier Are The Featured Violinists. From The San Francisco Chronicle Review By Heuwell Tircuit: "Recordings Of "Elektra" Are Not Numerous, Nor Have They Ever Been. This Has Not Been For The Lack Of Demand So Much As The Fact That The Opera Is Nearly Impossible To Sing And Play With Accuracy. Courage To The Ready The French National Radio People Decoded To Have A Go At It....An Ideal Cast Was Sought For The Project. The Result, Now Available On CD (And LP) Is A Triumph. Chrystotemis Has Long Been One Of Ryzanek's Major Roles And Forrester's Marvelous Klytemnestra Comes As No Great Surprise. But Winzing's Searing Performance Of The Title Role And Norup's Grandly Masculine Orest Are Every Bit As Fine - Marginally Better. Conductor Perick Also Matches The Best Quality Levels We Have Had - Which Is Amazing Considering The Competition From Mitropoulos, Boehm And Solti. Helped By High Dynamic Levels And Virtuoso Orchestral Support, The Recording Sapers You Nothing. When The The Full Brass And Percussion Episodes Break Loose, The Furniture Had Best Be Tied Down."... more details
