Richard Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier / Adrianna Pieczonka, Angelica Kirchschlager, Miah Persson, Franz Hawlata, Franz Grundheber. Semyon Bychkov. Vienna PO (Salzburg Festival 2004) [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Who is the most famous 20th c. tenor? Which opera is the most acclaimed? Which conductor inspires most ingeniously? To these and other questions there are no unequivocal answers; rather, it requires individual assessment, and subjective appreciation! Arthaus Musik has undertaken an exploration to perhaps answer such questions. And many options are included in the new Legendary Performances series. The first 10 operas of this series bring not only the ‘big names’ but also many others – be it singers, composers, conductors, stage directors, scenic designers, and even opera houses.

Strauss' musical comedy "Der Rosenkavalier" has a deep-rooted performance tradition at the Salzburg Festival, but Robert Carsen's fresh staging opened up a new view of this operatic staple. Semyon Bychkov conducts Strauss with flexible nuances and a great deal of energy.
