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.
