Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier CD (Christian Thielemann)


  • Renée Fleming heads 'a galactic cast' (Thielemann) in Strauss's bittersweet comedy of love, staged at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. Accompanying Fleming's peerless Marschallin is Sophie Koch as the ardent Octavian and Diana Damrau as the young Sophie, with Jonas Kaufmann appearing as the Italian Singer. Christian Thielemann's authoritative interpretation has been completely re-edited for this CD release.
