Description

'One is convinced, after listening to these discs, that this is Strauss's grandest and most ambitious, if not his most consistent, score, and that the beauty and imaginative genius of the orchestration are unsurpassed in all his music ... The highest honours must go to Wolfgang Sawallisch, whose passionate devotion to Strauss in general and to this opera in particular results here in a notable milestone.' Gramophone
