Strauss: Salome - Borkh, Lorenz, Klose, Frantz, C. Ludwig; Schröder. Frankfurt, 1952


Listen to a Sample:



  • Inge Borkh demonstrates why she more or less owned the role of Salome during the 1950s, bringing Hollywood glamor and a voice that would not buckle under strain.
  • Max Lorenz's Herod skews closer towards leading man than the grotesque caricature that this character all too often becomes.
  • Ferdinand Frantz's impressive baritone lends the role of Jochanaan an appropriate amount of fire and brimstone as well as sensual charisma.
  • A young Christa Ludwig plays the part of the page.


  • None to mention.

Inge Borkh sings "Allein! Weh, ganz allein" from Elektra
