Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

The great Plácido Domingo gives a tour-de-force performance in the title role of the King of Crete--a man caught in a desperate trap of his own making. To survive a storm at sea he has made an oath that now forces him to sacrifice the life of his beloved son, Idamante (sung by an aristocratic Anne Sofie von Otter). Dawn Upshaw is Ilia, the captured Trojan princess who has fallen in love with Idamante--much to the fury of Elettra (the sensational Carol Vaness) who wants the prince for herself. James Levine conducts the Met Orchestra in a passionate account of Mozart's magnificent score
