Richard Strauss: Salome

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
The best aspects of this live set are Richard Cassilly's Herod and Karl Bhm's adroitly disciplined conducting.

Fanfare
Karl Bhm was probably the greatest Strauss opera conductor of his time. He was unique in the way he was able to combine the delicate transparency of the colorful orchestration and exotic harmony without underplaying the massive climaxes and Strauss's "nerve-end contrapuntalism.

Gramophone Magazine
Singing of grandeur and magical intensity [from Gwyneth Jones, in the last scene] [...] [Fischer-Dieskau's] denunciation of the "Tochter Sodoms" chills the spine.
