Notes & Reviews:

Many of the transcriptions and arrangements of masterpieces of the past done by great composers of the early twentieth century, like Monteverdi's Orfeo revised and corrected by Ottorino Respighi (1934) and Mozart's Idomeneo freely and generously revised by Richard Strauss (1931), have become historical remains themselves, and as such are rediscovered and reproposed; seeking to be as faithful as possible to their own variously glaring faithlessness, they reflect the true feelings of the authors of these "revisions" much more than tributes and acts of devotion. In 1929 the Bohemian producer Lothar Wallerstein and the conductor Klemens Krauss asked Richard Strauss for an adaptation of Mozart's Idomeneo to be performed in 1931 to mark the 150th anniversary of the first performance of the opera, staged in Munich on 29th January 1781.
