Der Rosenkavalier is a 206-minute studio album of Richard Strauss's opera, performed by a cast led by Jules Bastin, José Carreras, Evelyn Lear, Frederica von Stade, Derek Hammond-Stroud and Ruth Welting with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Edo de Waart. It was released in 1977.

Background[edit | edit source]

The album presents the score without any cuts. It was recorded shortly after its musicians had performed the opera theatrically at the Holland Festival in 1976.[1] The Holland production was staged by the Netherlands Opera Foundation and produced by John Cox, with décor and costumes designed by Elizabeth Dalton.[2]

Recording[edit | edit source]

The album was recorded using analogue technology in July 1976 at De Doelen, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.[2]

Packaging[edit | edit source]

The covers of the LP and cassette releases of the album feature a photograph of Lear, von Stade and Welting in their Holland Festival costumes.[3][4] The cover of Philips's CD release of the album, designed under the art direction of Ton Friesen, features a photograph by Hans Morren of a rose silver-plated by Juwelier Fischer of Vienna.[2]
