Bombastic Heroic Lush Narrative Sensual. Animals Myths & Legends. Jess Thomas, Rudolf Kempe, Vienna State Opera Chorus.

Kempe, Wiener Philharmoniker, Fischer-Dieskau. With this 1964 production, Rudolf Kempe and the Vienna Philharmonic created a reference recording. The orchestra is the star of the show, even though the singers are placed in the foreground (a move typical of studio productions from this era). The cast assembled for the recording is first rate. The contrast between Grümmer and Ludwig is wonderful, pitting faithful purity against unfathomable evil. Frick and Fischer-Dieskau deliver role portraits (King Heinrich and Telramund) which have left a lasting impression in the world of Lohengrin interpretation.

This recording of Lohengrin moves from one mid priced release to another - and not, it should be said, in noticeably better sound. Rudolf Kempe conducted the very first performance to appear on record back in 1952 - a performance that nowadays appears very badly sung indeed. By contrast this recording, made between 1962 and 1963, is almost as perfect as one could wish for - except for the singing of Jess Thomas as Lohengrin.

The most known studio reference has drawbacks: the dynamics difference between Acts I and III with Act II, plus René Kollo's voice.
