The cast of this 1962 recording of Beethoven's Fidelio is yet to be improved upon. It would be hard to imagine a more heartrending Leonore than Christa Ludwig, a nobler Florestan than Jon Vickers, or a viler Rocco than Gottlob Frick

As fine as the cast is, the work of conductor Otto Klemperer is the real reason that this Fidelio is the Fidelio to get if you're getting only one. Acknowledged in his time as one of the greatest of postwar Beethoven conductors, Klemperer is at the top of his game here, delivering a performance that is perfectly formed, wonderfully detailed, intensely dramatic, and overwhelmingly effective, without being trite, tawdry, or overdone. By the time the Act II finale ends, Klemperer should have all but the most skeptical listeners convinced that not only is this the finest recording of Fidelio.
