In Reply to: RE: Agreed about Bohm, early years, middle years, or late years. I can't think of a single performance of his posted by pbarach on June 21, 2017 at 15:30:53
as there can only be on Tamino.
...the rest of the cast, not so much. Peters and Lear are barely adequate, and DFD's Papageno drives me up the wall.
And Bohm's conducting is humorless and charmless, as it always is in Mozart.
Count me as another fan of the Fricsay recording (DFD aside).
I adore that recording and have it on LP, tape and CD. AND... the Fricsay is every bit as good, with better conducting and wonderful, often sublime singing throughout.
