CD Reviews

A moving performance
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know why there are so many people who dislike this
version.The music Karajan produced in his late career is
warmer, lighter and more glowing than before. All those
qualities are essential to this opera. Just listen to the
final trio, you can know why this performance is better than
the Krajan-EMI, which is emotionaly cooler."
Tomowa-Sintow is much much better than Schwartkopf

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm sorry, cant stand Schwartzy. Tomowa-Sintow is great here, and so is the rest of the cast. Much prefered to Karajans first Rosenkavalier. But I believe the perfect, or best Rosenkavalier has yet to be released. The broadcast from the Met with TeKanawa and Troyanos probably came closest in my book, but that isnt available anywhere on CD or video...:-("
A phenomenal recording
H. Buehler | Rochester, NY, USA | 04/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the POV of an opera student, this recording is beyond impressive. I also have the DVD w/ the cast, and both blow me away completely. Anna Tomowa-Sintow is a gorgeous Marschallin, Agnes Baltsa truly shines as Octavian, and Janet Perry's Sophie is sweet and adorable. I don't get what's all the fussing about this recording at all but... to me, this recording does not lose to the 1956 one w/ Schwartzkopf/Ludwig/Stitch-Randall (which I also own) at all!"
