Notes and Editorial Reviews

This exceptional programme of highlights from Richard Strauss´s works Der Rosenkavalier, Feuersnot, Salome, Elektra, Die ägyptische Helena, Arabella, Die schweigsame Frau and Daphne was dedicated to Richard Strauss 150th birthday in Dresden. The reputation as »THE Strauss-Orchestra« of the Staatskapelle Dresden results from the special relation to Richard Strauss and his works, which started 130 years ago, performing many world premieres of Richard Strauss´s operas and orchestral works.

The DVD includes the documentary My Strauss with Christian Thielemann, including a lot of archival footage with Richard Strauss, rehearsals and concert excerpts of Elektra, Rosenkavalier, Frau ohne Schatten,

 Christine Goerke is an incredible artist June 3, 2015 By Francisco J. (Pennsauken, NJ) See All My Reviews "What could be better than a DVD of the music of Richard Strauss - a DVD with Christine Goerke, Christian Theielmann, et.al. Ms. Goerke has power and strength that makes your hair stand on end. But she never forgets that it's Strauss and his music that matters most. I so look forward to hearing more of her Wagner as well as her Turandot this coming season at the MET. Listening to her voice, one is so totally amazed and has to wonder - where does all that sound and power come from. A very exciting performance." Report Abuse
