Strauss: Salome - Borkh, Lorenz, Hotter, Barth; Keilberth. München, 1951


Listen to a Sample:



  • Inge Borkh delivers a riveting performance in the title role, displaying opulent tones without shying away from pushing her voice beyond the bounds of beauty for dramatic effect.
  • Hans Hotter's approaches the role of Jochanaan with the same level of nuance that he brought to Winterreise, resulting in a prophet who is far more human in scale.
  • Joseph Keilberth has an excellent sense of which details to highlight within the orchestra.The approach gives greater musical focus to passages that can otherwise sound like cacophony.
  • The sound is excellent.


  • None to mention.
