In 1946, the young Elisabeth Schwarzkopf made her first recording with the British producer Walter Legge in Vienna. He became her husband in 1953. All the recordings in this 5-CD collection date from the first six years of their professional and personal relationship, as Schwarzkopf, with the captivating freshness of her voice and finesse of her artistry, established herself as one of the leading sopranos of her time.
