Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier - Grümmer, Meyer, Otto, Greindl; Varviso. Berlin, 1959
Listen to a Sample:
- Kerstin Meyer's silvery mezzo finds a perfect home in the role of Octavian.
- Elisabeth Grümmer's poised Marschallin skews more youthful than most in this role which lends a little more legitimacy to her infatuation with Octavian.
- Without sacrificing the comic component, Josef Greindl brings a touch of nobility to the role of Ochs.
- Previous versions of this recording were slightly under pitch. I have corrected this flaw.
- None to mention.
