Richard Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier - Complete Recording 1951

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The combination of Der Rosenkavalier and Dresden has always been very special. The work was premiered at the Semperoper in 1911 – and was an immediate sensation. Strauss and his librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal had written a 'comedy for music'
in which the Rococo era of Maria Theresia's Vienna was revived – not for historical reasons, but as a reflection on their own apocalyptic mood. Everything seems so genuine in this piece and yet it is all an illusion. From the solemn presentation of the rose (a Hofmannsthal invention) to the Viennese waltz mania, it is a musical anachronism – which makes its timelessness all too clear. The Staatskapelle musicians still play their idol's work from the original orchestral parts of the premiere.
