Notes and Editorial Reviews

The...account conducted by Clemens Krauss eclipsed, at the time, the merits of the [Rudolf] Moralt reading. The last of Krauss's postwar Strauss recordings, it proved a fitting climax to the series before the conductor's death months later. As far as mono allowed, it caught all the amazing power and translucency of the score in a taut, disciplined interpretation. Goltz's Salome is as impressive as it was for Keilberth five years earlier except that her vibrato has uncomfortably loosened in the meantime.

Patzak is again an accomplished Herod: petulant, unpredictable, wheedling (to Salome after she has demanded the Prophet's head) and finally horrified at his stepdaughter's unseemly behaviour — and sung with the utmost
Read more musicality. Hans Braun is a steady but unimaginative Jochanaan and Margareta Kenny a blowzy, uneven Herodias, but Anton Dermota, with his ardent, liquid singing, is among the most telling of Narraboths.

-- Alan Blyth, Gramophone [2/2005]
