I would find it difficult to compare Janowitz and Hillbebrecht, Rysanek or Reining in the same sentence, or to the same repertoire or style of singing.  I heard Janowitz many times as Ariadne in Vienna in the late 70s, but never was I as thrilled as I was hearing the beauty of a Rysanek or Jessye Norman in the title role.  Janowitz was not as technically secure as the others, although she had a voice, in my opinion, better suited to Mozart than R. Strauss.
