Notes and Editorial Reviews

Böhm’s approach is rather symphonic. He trusts Strauss’s score so much that he treats it much as he would the other Strauss: Richard. His soloists are splendid: Gundula Janowitz a radiant Rosalinde, Renate Holm repeating her Adele from Boskovsky’s set, Waldemar Kmentt, Eberhard Wächter as Eisenstein, the little recorded Heinz Holicek a warm Falke and Erich Kunz appears here too, as Frank.
