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
