Three Rs: Rosenkavalier, Röschmann, and aRiodante (not together)

Der infamous Rosenkavalier from Glyndebourne (Video available for about 6 days.)


Dorothea Röschmann singing Faure, Liszt (somewhat surprisingly), Strauss, and Wolf (less surprising) in recital from Wigmore on Radio BBC 3 (For about 7 more days.)




Handel’s Ariodante in a 1997 performance from the Concertgebouw on Radio 4 Concerthuis (for about 16 more days) with Anne Sofie von Otter, Richard Croft, Marc Minkowski, and others.

  1. I want to (re)listen/(re)watch all that but there are only so many hours in a week!

    Speaking of all those together, has Roschmann ever sung the Marschallin? (Bad idea?)

    1. She has (opposite Magdalena Kozená as Octavian)! And Earworm thought it was a good idea -- twice: http://earwormopera.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/strauss-der-rosenkavalier-staatsoper-berlin-12-18-12/

    2. Frau R also sang the Marschallin in about 2007 which, handily, you can buy on CD from here: http://www.premiereopera.com/3392-3derrosenkavalier.aspx And it has Malin Hartellius as Sophie!

  2. So much musical goodness in one post, Rob! You may have outdone yourself with this one :-) I think I'll focus on Der infamous Rosenkavalier since I now have offline options for listening to Frau R/Malcolm Martineau's truly wonderful recital as well as the exact version of Ariodante in the picture you have posted (which is also truly wonderful, and every home should have a copy).

    1. Thanks, PG. I think I may have to get that DR Rosenkav. (and I also have offline options for that Wigmore program - wink, wink)
