"Elisabeth Schwarzkopf was the most celebrated Marschallin since Lotte Lehmann; Otto Edelmann recalled the great days of Emanuel List and Richard Mayr; Sena Jurinac, perhaps a shade too plump for a dramatically convincing Octavian, nevertheless sang, moved and acted well; and Annaliese Rothenberger was absolutely divine as Sophie. The filmed production is lavish and colorful. This was the definitive performance of its time." (The New York Times)

Translucence, transparency, warmth, are the qualities identified by Bernard Haitink as necessary for an ideal sound performance of Beethoven's only opera, and all are present in this fantastic recording of Katharina Thalbach's 2008 production for Opernhaus Zürich. Haitink conducts the Zürich Opera Orchestra in a magnificent performance in which Leonore Overture No. 3 provides an interlude between the two scenes of the second act, following a tradition started by Gustav Mahler. German soprano Melanie Diener, in the role of Leonore, leads a brilliant cast including Alfred Muff as Rocco, Roberto Saccà as Florestan, Sandra Trattnigg as Marzelline and Christoph Strehl as Jaquino
