Strauss: Salome - Rysanek, Hopf, Varnay, Roar; Kempe. München, 1974


Listen to a Sample:



  • This performance, in excellent stereo sound, could easily stand up to some of the greatest performances of Salome I have heard.
  • Leonie Rysanek is in marvelous voice and sings with utter commitment and remarkable finesse.
  • The supporting cast is excellent, including the over-the-top Herodias of Astrid Varnay, the frenetic Herod of Hans Hopf.
  • The playing of the Bavarian State Opera orchestra is particularly fine, thanks to the leadership of Rudolf Kempe who finds specific intention in even the most minute detail.


  • None to mention.
