  1. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Not long ago I learned that Richard Strauss made an arrangement of Mozart's Idomeneo. Now I learn that he made one of Gluck's Iphigénie en Tauride as well. What's more, there is a recording of it with Monserrat Caballe made in 1961. Now that would be interesting to hear. Alas, it seems to be on...
  2. Opera
    Just "discovered" this performance with a great cast. The sound is quite good for 1935 (leave it to the Germans!) and I love the performance. Roswenge is spectacular. I would love to see Pristine take a crack at this. I should mention this recording eschews the Prologue. Does anyone know this...

    I can't believe I cannot find any thread made for Elektra recordings. Please, bring here some threads that do include recommendations. Yesterday I attended my first Opera performance live and guess which it was. Sung by Irene Theorin and conducted by Marc Albrecht. Today I finished the last...

  7. Orchestral Music
    According to wiki: Strauss's tone poems are the reasons that make him one of my favorite composers. The Eine Alpensinfonie is not only my favorite tone poem but one of, if not, my favorite pieces of all-time. So, I would like to know which one is your favorite. Please, vote!
