Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier - Watson, Töpper, Köth, Böhme, Wiener, Wunderlich, Stolze, Fassbaender; Keilberth. München, 1965
Listen to a Sample:
- This recording sports a remarkable trio of female leads - Claire Watson, Hertha Töpper and Erika Köth as well as an embarrasment of riches in the smaller parts including Gerhard Stolze and Brigitte Fassbaender as Valzacchi and Annina, Otto Wiener as Faninal, Fritz Wunderlich as the Italian Singer and Kurt Böhme as Baron Ochs.
- Joseph Keilberth seems completely in his element in Strauss' sentimental yet modern idiom.
- None to mention
