    Some gorgeous singing, especially from Popp and Kurt Moll.

    Interesting fact: Lucia Popp is credited as one of the Blumenmädchen in famous 1980 Parsifal (Minton, Weikl, Salminen, King, Moll, Kubelik/BRSO)

    Parsifal.jpg

    Both Yvonne Minton and Lucia Popp are in the glorious "dream team" Mahler 8 cast of singers with Colti/CSO. There is a spot in Chorus Mysticus where Heather Harper sings a long legato passage ending on a top B-flat and Lucia Popp picks up the same note and continues the musical phrase. This has never been done better by anyone.

    She is also a flowermaiden in the Solti Parsifal and a Rhinemaiden in the Solti Götterdämmerung​.

    Yes, I saw Popp and Frick on the cover and thought it looked enticing.

    Haven't heard this one but I like the cover a lot.

    This is the first set I heard of the opera and it's actually quite good!

    I loved the LP when I first got it. The last scene with its maniacal laughter remains in my memory.
    You can't beat the cast.

    One of the first Opera LP's I ever bought. I think I posted about it on my first post here? I could be wrong though.
    Did I miss something already?

    This one should be in your collection , just for Popp alone.

    One of the most beautiful and heavenly recordings of a Mozart aria for soprano, 'Ruhe sanft' from Zaide, from the Decca 'Mozart Opera Festival' collection, and certainly among Lucia Popp's greatest:
