Birgit Nilsson (1918-2005) was one of the foremost operatic artists of the twentieth century and is still admired by new generations all over the world thanks to her recordings. It was therefore a sensation to present, in this issue, the unreleased recordings of a repertoire in which she hasn't been featured on record earlier.

"Der Rosenkavalier/Fidelio" is the second issue in the recording series "Royal Swedish Opera Archives", a series of eight volumes with unique opera recording that Caprice Records has released in collaboration with the Royal Swedish Opera. The year was 1959 and the recordings were partly made from the wings (Fidelio) and partly from the first row (Der Rosenkavalier).

Birgit Nilsson never recorded her role as the Marschallin in "Der Rosenkavalier". But now we can hear her, with the elegant rendering of lyrics, the ease when delivering lines, the musicality and the freshness of her tone. She is surrounded by Kerstin Meyer's world famous Octavian, Eva Prytz at the same time ethereal and temperamental Sophie and the young Arne Tyrén's burlesque Baron Ochs. Sixten Erhling was the conductor.

Barbro Ericson, Ingeborg Kjellgren, Erik Sundquist and Sven-Erik Vikström form the first class ensemble that in its turn surrounds them. We join them just in time for Uno Stjernquist's melting rendering of the singer's Italian aria. The first half of the first act couldn't be saved, unfortunately, because the placement of the microphones drowned the singers in the orchestra.

Leonora in "Fidelio" has been recorded by Birgit Nilsson previously, but these first generous excerpts allow us to hear the first version in German in Stockholm, with an intensively engaged Sixten Ehrling and with the undeservedly overlooked tenor Conny Söderström as Florestan. And in Rocco's role Leo Björker, the bass Birgit Nilsson often has wanted to remember as the best. World famous Wagner baritone Sigurd Björling is a cruelly accentuated Pizarro. And Birgit Nilsson - on the threshold here to her debut at the Metropolitan and thus her international career - acts with the precise passion of the mature artist while the great voice is guided by pure lightness and elasticity.

These are odd recordings of a 40-year-old Birgit Nilsson in great shape!
