Richard Strauss Der Rosenkavalier
When Richard Strauss set music to the intrigues of this comedy taking place in 18th century Vienna, he created some of his most voluptuous orchestral sounds, as seductive as the characters’ love games. A grand orchestration with wonderful waltzes and melodies to die for. The opera’s highlights have been selected in this suite – generously rich both in variety and expression.
