Recording live Aug. 26, 1955

Goltz was one of the leading Elektras of the '50s and one of Böhm's favorite singers of the role. This performance finds the conductor more leisurely than usual in the first third of the opera. Goltz sang more than 100 performances either in Vienna or Munich during that period. She never had a particularly attractive voice, but it was of remarkable volume for such a slight woman. She begins unsteady and, unfortunately, doesn't improve much. No question she must have been exciting to watch. This is perhaps Madeira's finest singing of Klytämnestra; I hope she didn't do the blood-curdling screams in this recording; it might have damaged her voice! The real jewel of this performance is Rysanek's Chrysothemis, caught early in her career (two years after the Kraus-conducted performance above) and sung with full-bodied gusto-it is thrilling indeed. The sound is remarkable clear for its age, and there are many stage sounds that add to the excitement. Goltz (b.1912) was a dancer before she became a singer (she was "discovered" by Böhm ). She had a trim, slight figure; her performances were always active physically as evidenced by the many stage sounds clearly heard. It is said that her " Dance of the Seven Veils" in Salome was carefully choreographed and highly believable. When performing Salome she would leap over Narraboth's dead body after he killed himself. Let us hope, for the sake of Narraboths of the world, that other less lithe sopranos don't attempt this! Some may wish to have this recording for Rysanek's early Chrysothemis.
