Description
Recorded in 1963, this historic, black-and-white Austrian television broadcast of Giuseppe Verdi's final masterpiece was performed in the studio in German translation. The sets and costumes are traditional Tudor period, and superior expertise in singing and stagecraft is shared by all.

"Otto Edelmann plays a blessedly unexaggerated Falstaff, first cousin to his Baron Ochs (preserved in Karajan's recording)…. The other major names in the cast are Elisabeth Höngen as a not-too-plummy Mistress Quickly and Graziella Sciutti as a bright-voiced 'Ännchen.'… Santi conducts … with an Italianate vigour…. As a historical document, this is probably as good as they come."—Gramophone

"The best of these singing actors is Elisabeth Höngen, who shows a genuine gift for comedy without exaggerating it…. She also has an alluring and smooth voice, and her German diction is excellent. Her co-conspirators, Alice Ford and Meg Page, also play their parts well. Sparks fly and the comedy is irresistible."—American Record Guide

"The Nannetta-Fenton scenes are particularly charming and credible, while the business of Falstaff and Ford struggling to get through a narrow door at the same time seems surprisingly spontaneous and not at all ridiculous. The antics in Windsor Forest are funny but not overdone, with just the right hint of sadness for poor Falstaff, who after all, deserves what he gets. Santi's faithful rendition of the score features excellent ensemble that extends to dramatic ensemble, as well."—Opera News
