“[Solti's] overwhelming account of Strauss's Salome... Nilsson 's account of the title role remains another towering monument to her tireless singing.”
- Alan Blyth, Gramophone Magazine

"Nilsson does more than sing perfectly: she cajoles, she rejoices, the voice quivers with delight, the words are spat out. The final apotheosis will send shivers down your spine. The Vienna Philharmonic under Solti is magnificent. This will exhaust you, as rightly a Salome should."
- Robert Levine, ClassicsToday.com

There is no mistaking [Nilsson's] voice for anything but one of the greatest heroic sopranos of all times, steady, shining like stainless Swedish steel."
- Göran Forsling, MusicWeb International

Straussian specialist Birgit Nilsson is at the height of her powers in this electrifying recording of Salome. With Gerhard Stolze as Herod, Eberhard Wächter as Jokanaan, and Grace Hoffmann as Herodias, this remastered release presents an all-star cast, supported by Sir Georg Solti and the magnificent Vienna Philharmonic.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
