About

Stefan Zweig, one of the greatest German language writers of the 20th century, was born in Vienna. In the 19th century, the city was the musical, even cultural, capital of the western world. Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven founded ‘Viennese Classicism’ and later, of course, Schoenberg, Berg and Webern created a revolution with the second ‘Vienna School’. So it comes as no surprise that music was the first source of inspiration for Stefan Zweig, a literary genius.

The first CD of this 3 CD set explores the works of various composers associated with Vienna movements, whilst discs 2 and 3 are devoted to The Silent Women, the Richard Strauss opera with a libretto by Stefan Zweig, in the historic version (1959) with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Karl Böhm. A recording long deleted from the catalogue and here reissued for this special set.

Cast:
- Hans Hotter (Sir Morosus)
- Georgine von Milinkovic (Haushälterin)
- Hermann Prey (Barbier)
- Fritz Wunderlich (Henry Morosus)
- Hilde Güden (Aminta)
- Pierette Alaire (Isotta)
- Hetty Plümacher (Carlotta)
- Josef Knapp (Morbio)
