Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier - Lear, Fassbaender, Popp, Ridderbusch; Kleiber. Milano, 1976
Listen to a Sample:
- In 1976 Carlos Kleiber treated the Milanese public to his legendary interpration of Der Rosenkavalier.
- Evelyn Lear, although late in her career, brings poise and sincere feeling to the Marschallin.
- Brigitte Fassbaender and Lucia Popp, frequent collaborators in these parts, bring youthful oppulence to their respective roles.
- From his first vocal entrance Karl Ridderbusch's Ochs exudes coarse elegance, elevating the characer from a commedia dell'arte cliché to something a little more refined and human.
- The sound is very good.
- None to mention
