Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier / Karajan, Schwarzkopf, Edelmann [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]
Composer: Richard Strauss
Conductor: Herbert von Karajan
Performer: Otto Edelmann, Christa Ludwig, et al.
Ensemble: Philharmonia Chorus, Philharmonia Orchestra
Emd/Emi Classics - #56242 / September 16, 1997

An opera that seems to bring the best out of performers, Rosenkavalier inspired these perf ormers to make a recording for the ages. With a superb Ochs and glorious singing from its three leading l adies, and with Herbert von Karajan keeping the Philharmonia on the edge of its seat, this enticing portr ait of love from three angles emerges in all its bittersweet perfection. EMI recorded the opera with sepa rate engineering teams in stereo and mono; this remastering of the stereo version is...Read more


Strauss: Salome / Solti, Nilsson, Vienna Philharmonic

Conductor: Sir Georg Solti
Performer: Nigel Douglas, Kurt Equiluz, et al.
Ensemble: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
Uni/London Classics - #14414 / July 7, 1987

Soprano Birgit Nilsson would not look right in the role of the kittenish, erotically obsessed teenage princess who does her Dance of the Seven Veils for King Herod and demands the head of John the Baptist in payment. For that, you want to see Catherine Malfitano in the video edition issued by Telarc. But no other soprano on record matches Nilsson's vocal power and control in Salome's cruelly demanding music. The role calls for strong characterization as well as glittering high notes, and in...Read more


R. Strauss: Elektra / Mitropoulos, Borkh, Della Casa, et al
Composer: Richard Strauss
Conductor: Dimitri Mitropoulos
Performer: Inge Borkh, Kurt Bhme, et al.
Ensemble: Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera Chorus
Orfeo D'Or (Ger) - #456972 / September 23, 1997

Strauss's shocker gets an appropriately shocking performance, live from the stage of the 1957 Salzburg Festival. Inge Borkh was a superb Straussian, and her Elektra is riveting, sung with febrile passion. Jean Madeira's Klytemnestra is in Borkh's league, and Lisa Della Casa's somewhat cool Chrysothemis isn't far behind. The men are right up there with them, but it's the conductor who stars. Dimitri Mitropoulos drives a volcanic performance, full of dramatic thrust and inevitability that captures...Read more


Great Recordings Of The Century - Strauss, R.: Ariadne Auf Naxos / Karajan, Schwarzkopf, Streich, Seefried, et al

Composer: Richard Strauss
Conductor: Herbert von Karajan
Performer: Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Rita Streich, et al.
Ensemble: Philharmonia Orchestra
Emd/Emi Classics - #67156 / September 21, 1999

This first studio version of Ariadne, from 1954, was long considered the gold standard and has stood the test of time exceptionally well. London's Philharmonia Orchestra produces a gorgeous sound, sensitive and refined in detail. Karajan shapes an often rapturously poetic account, replete with broad and lingering tempi and an expertly calibrated sense of balance--features that likewise mark the 1956 Rosenkavalier that many count as one of the conductor's highest achievements. Irmgard Seefried...Read more
