Description

This superb edition of Richard Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier, one of the greatest masterpieces in the operatic repertoire, is reprinted complete and unabridged from a rare, limited, and numbered edition approved by Strauss and prepared by his publisher, Adolph F├╝rstner, prior to the opera's premiere in Dresden in 1911.
Available for the first time in inexpensive format -- at far less than the cost of any comparable full-score edition -- this volume offers an easy-to-read score, with wide margins, large noteheads, and many other helpful features. Carefully printed and sturdily bound, it will provide a lifetime of pleasurable use to professional and amateur musicians as well as those who delight in following, score in hand, a live or recorded performance.
Der Rosenkavalier is the most popular operatic work of the Bavarian composer in whose operas, songs, and symphonic poems the aesthetics of the Romantic movement were to reach their ultimate expression. A radiant and bittersweet celebration of love, it was Strauss's most successful collaboration with the illustrious Austrian poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and was an immediate sensation.
Audiences then, as now, were enthralled by the melodic glories of Der Rosenkavalier's vocal ensembles, the richness of its orchestration, and the charm and depth of its characters. Throughout, it reveals the composer's bravura post-Romantic style, which was to influence numerous composers and to mesmerize audiences around the world. It remains today one of the most performed and recorded of all operatic works.
