Der Rosenkavalier

Der Rosenkavalier (Op. 59) (The Knight of the Rose) is a comic opera in three acts by Richard Strauss to an original German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Harry von Kessler (cultural impresario/diplomat of the Belle Epoque and Weimar Republic and diarist (1880-1937), who had the original idea and co-authored the scenario).

It was 150 years ago -- On June 11, 1864, German composer Richard Strauss, known for such operas as "Der Rosenkavalier," ''Salome" and "Elektra" and tone poems like "Also Sprach Zarathustra," was born in Munich. Also on this day in entertainment, art, literature and sports, June 11: • 1892, The Limelight Department, one of the world's first film studios, is officially established in Melbourne, Australia. • 1907, George Dennett, aided by Gilbert Jessop, dismisses Northamptonshire for 12 runs, the lowest total in first-class cricket. • 1919, Sir Barton won the Belmont Stakes, becoming horse racing's first Triple Crown winner. • 1935, Inventor Edwin Armstrong gives the first public demonstration of FM broadcasting in the United States at Alpine, New Jersey. • 1938, Johnny Vander Meer pitched the first of two consecutive no-hitters as he led the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the Boston Bees.

“Glyndebourne 2014: Der Rosenkavalier, review *** s the bigger *** the author or the publisher?
This is disgusting. How dare this pig reduce a performance to his own absurd ideas about body image?
so this isn't a review of Rosenkavalier it's really just an alarming display of chauvinism
& a heavier woman as love interest MUST be an "intended weirdness" because why would anyone love a FAT person?

The visit to Glyndebourne for the first night performance of Der Rosenkavalier
Glyndebourne’s 80th-anniversary season opens with Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, not seen at Glyndebourne since 1982, in a new staging by Richard Jones, with Robin Ticciati, the company’s new Music Director, conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
And here we go again - only Friday Strauss' massive comedy Der Rosenkavalier was streamed in direct from Malmö Opera and tonight it's time for Puccini's classical or rather early-modern tear-jerker about love & disease in a timeless Paris with Olesya Golovneva leading a great cast in Orpha Phelan's production
As for the program this afternoon at Bargemusic and the FREE, FREE concert is David Del Tredici's "Grand Trio." The details are: Grand Trio is for the violin, cello and piano (2001) Duration: 32 min. Premiere 22 October 2002 University of Maryland Kalichstein, Laredo, Robinson Trio Dedication for Joseph Kalichstein, Jaime Laredo, and Sharon Robinson Program Note 1. Aria I: Vivace 2. Aria II: Lento 3. Fuga: Allegro 4. Remniscence: Allegretto amabile If only because of its length (more than thirty minutes), my first piano trio might be called "grand." Grandeur, however, is surely less a matter of length than a question of character — here, an extravagant neo-romanticism. Accordingly, the work unfolds dramatically, demands the utmost virtuosity of its performers, and ultimately glories in largeness of gesture and immediacy of sentiment. The violinist and cellist frame the first movement (Aria I) with two Herculean cadenzas, giving the work a concerto-like quality. In double octaves, they go on to sing a bo ...

Weekend so far: Wake up Friday to take Jessica Mazzeo Eastridge to a cardiologist appointment. Get to the car to see two suitcases and a card with my name on it. Open card and find out we're not going to a cardiologist but instead are going somewhere else. 2 hours later we're in New York City walking around Times Square on our way to see the New York Philharmonic perform Felix Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony! After getting lost on the subway we finally make our way back to the hotel room and go to sleep. Woke up this morning planning to go to Little Italy for food and then see Central Park. Instead I woke up with another card and two tickets to see Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss performed by The Metropolitan Opera. In row H too! Thank you Jessica, Ken Dillon, Rhoda Dillon, Joseph Mazzeo, and Janice Meyer Mazzeo for making this such a great weekend. It's not over yet either!
I'm headed to NYC later this week. I plan to see Der Rosenkavalier and Falstaff at the Metropolitan Opera.
After doing this opera thing for so many years, I am FINALLY seeing a production at the Metropolitan Opera - Der Rosenkavalier!

SPOTLIGHT October 22 The Last Night at the Old Met Answer of the Day Who founded the Metropolitan Opera House? Stung by their inability to acquire box seats at NY's Academy of Music, a group of nouveaux riches decided to build their own opera house on the corner of Manhattan's Broadway and 39th St. On this date in 1883, New York City's Metropolitan Opera House opened with a performance of Charles Gounod's Faust. Very quickly, the new opera house became the standard bearer. In 1966, the Metropolitan Opera Company moved to a new location at Lincoln Center. It premiered with Samuel Barber's Antony and Cleopatra, which was written especially for the occasion. This week sees performances of Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier, Verdi's Aïda and Berlioz's The Damnation of Faust.

Participating artists will create original works related to these productions plus two more well-known operas.

At Cincinnati Opera watching sitzprobe of Der Rosenkavalier! What beautiful music!
Today the musical world remembers the birthday of Richard Strauss. I have loved his music since I was a teen, and as I approach 70, I am still thrilled by it. The first piece I learned was Ein Heldenleben with Mengelberg and the NY Phil., from 1928. This remains a magnificent recording, perhaps equalled only by Reiner/CSO and Karajan/BPO (1st DG). I remember seeing Ariande auf Naxos at the Chicago Lyric Opera (1964, Jochum conducting) with Ron and Richard--an amazing evening at the opera. Der Rosenkavalier, Die Frau ohne Schatten, the Alpine Symphony, Don Quixote, and the Four Last Songs -- all of these among my favorite works in music altogether. Richard Moritz and I saw Salome, Elektra, and Ariadne auf Naxos in Toronto in the 1990s. So to Richard Strauss on his 149th birthday, Happy Birthday!
Richard Georg Strauss (11 June 1864 in Munich – 8 September 1949) was a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, which include Der Rosenkavalier and Salome; his Lieder, especially his Four Last Songs; and his tone poems and other orchestral works, such as Death and Transfiguration, Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks, Also Sprach Zarathustra, An Alpine Symphony, and Metamorphosen. Strauss was also a prominent conductor throughout Germany and Austria. Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, represents the late flowering of German Romanticism after Richard Wagner, in which pioneering subtleties of orchestration are combined with an advanced harmonic style. Strauss was born the son of Franz Strauss, who was the principal horn player at the Court Opera in Munich. In his youth, he received a thorough musical education from his father. He wrote his first composition at the age of six, and continued to write music almost until his death. During his boyhood Strauss ...
Happy 149th Birthday Richard Strauss! Strauss’ music was heavily influenced by Wagner. His operas and tone poems are masterpieces of virtuosity for the symphony orchestra. Strauss is best remembered for his operas Salome (1905) and Der Rosenkavalier (1911), and his tone poems, Don Juan (1888), Death and Transfiguration (1890), Also Sprach Zarathustra (1896), An Alpine Symphony (1915) and many other works. Strauss was a leading composer in the transition between the late Romantic period and the early modern era. His works are now part of the repertoire of most major orchestras. Also Sprach Zarathustra, one of his most familiar pieces, is easily recognizable after the use of the introduction in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Read more about Strauss at Dean's blog.

If I have to read about how "opulent" Strauss's "Der Rosenkavalier" is or about the "sardonic" wit of Shostakovich's music one more time, I'm going to scream.

Just watched "Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard Strauss, produced by the Netherlands Opera and conducted by Simon Rattle. It was a good production.
I disagree! Der Rosenkavalier was my 1st, I went on my own aged 18, and I LOVED it!

Going through the Der Rosenkavalier tag on Tumblr is not good for my mental health. i blame you for this new masochistic streak.

Today in 1911, Richard Strauss' opera Der Rosenkavalier receives its debut performance at the Dresden State Opera.
Der Rosenkavalier is a fantastic opera - esp for mezzos! Wonderful to see in my favourite opera role (Octavian) at in 2012.
Der Rosenkavalier had its premiere on this day in 1911. Take a look at this replica rose presented to Georg Solti ^C
Der Rosenkavalier, Op. 59, a comic opera in three acts by Richard Strauss to an original German libretto by Hugo von Hofmannstha, was first performed at the Königliches Opernhaus in Dresden on January 26, 1911 under the direction of Max Reinhardt.   Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s libretto was based partly on two plays by Molière. From the beginning he planned a major role for a young man to be played and sung by a woman. Octavian is the lover of the opera’s principal female character, the aristocratic Marschallin, and the opera’s opening scene finds them in bed together. When Hofmannsthal sent Strauss the scene in the spring of 1909 the composer was delighted with it and wrote back: ‘It will set itself to music like oil and melted butter; I’m hatching it already.’ It took Hofmannstahl until June 1910 to complete the libretto and Strauss finished the score in September. The Dresden opera authorities were worried that the opera was obscene, but the première went ahead with Max Reinhardt as directo ...
Good Friday morning to you! Interesting weather out there! Stay safe and warm! On the Morning Concert today, some music to hopefully help keep you calm and relaxed. In the first hour, we'll hear Albinoni's Oboe Concerto in D minor; Bach's Violin Partita No.2 in D minor; the Overture to Rossini's "Cinderella"; and a lovely choral anthem by John Rutter. We'll pick things up a bit at the top of the 10:00 hour with Richard Strauss's "Der Rosenkavalier" suite (the featured piece on today's composers datebook). We'll keep you updated with the latest road and weather conditions...stay tuned!
Oh dear. How could i have forgotten you? CHAPTER 3 UP!!
Rumor has it Tcherniakov will direct at the Met-- "Prince Igor" and "Der Rosenkavalier"-- in coming seasons.
I really don't like the way Felicity Lott sings "Ja, ja" in Der Rosenkavalier which is a shame because her Marschallin is very good.
I love Strauss and enjoyed DER ROSENKAVALIER 2 days ago there is no doubt Simon Rattle is an exciting conductor,

Have you ever heard a song and for whatever reason, didn't know who it was by and didn't know the name, yet, looked and looked for it anyway? Well, finally after looking for one song for 13 years,.I finally found the one I've been looking for. It's not what most people would listen to, but, I heard it for the first time on a carousel when I was a little kid(obviously it's in the classical genre), then again on a soap opera, and sure enough, tonight, I found it again. I can see myself sitting on that carousel all over again. Richard Strauss - Der Rosenkavalier - Waltz Sequence No. 1
My selection today for "forgotten celebrity who's still with us" isn't what you'd call a movie star, though she has a major role in a 7 Oscar winning Best Picture. Rise Stevens (born Rise Steenberg) plans on celebrating her 100th birthday next June 11, & she was predominantly a star of opera since debuting at the Met in 1939 playing Octavian in Richard Strauss' "Der Rosenkavalier" and remaining there for 21 years. But her movie claim to fame was in 1944's Oscar champ "Going My Way" playing a friend of Father Chuck O'Malley (Bing Crosby) & also singing the title song in it. Her only other film appearance was as the singing wife of a jealous Nelson Eddy in 1941's "The Chocolate Soldier". And much later she also contributed voicework as Glinda the Good Witch in the animated fantasy "Journey Back To Oz" which was released in 1974. But on TV she appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show" 13 times between 1951 & 1960, 23 times on "The Voice Of Firestone" from 1949 to 1958, & 3 times in 1962 on "The Tonight Show St ...
What's better than a mid-week night out!? Enjoy a great deal at one of many Cape Ann restaurants, then hit the Shalin Liu PC on Tuesday for The Metropolitan Opera's encore broadcast of Der Rosenkavalier: Tickets:
You know? Sometimes life's difficult decisions are not so agonizing. I'm currently trying to decide. Should we go to an unspecified "chamber music" performance in the Mozarteum in Salzburg, or should I go see the Barber of Seville sung in German in Vienna? Leaning toward chamber music in Salzburg since we are also seeing Der Rosenkavalier in Vienna AND Madame Butterfly in Prague. Really toughy here! ;) Thoughts?
Been listening a lot to the Solti Rosenkavalier lately and have blogged my thoughts about it here:
My internet went down in the middle of The Presentation of the Rose from Der Rosenkavalier. I almost fainted with rage.

So excited for Der Rosenkavalier on Great Performances tonight.
Mozart tonight at the Pritzker Pavillion (Millenium Park) -- "Cosi fan tutte" excerpts from Act One -- and the closing scene from "Der Rosenkavalier" by Strauss. I like both composers. Sometimes I wonder if Mozart got paid by the note, the way they just pour out of him (and his original scores have few, if any corrections -- a real genius). He's like a fighter -- Sugar Ray Robinson when in shape -- who can hit you any time he wants to, all night long. And he knew how to make music funny when the libretto demanded it -- nothing that Bach or Beethoven could have done, though they are as great in their own ways. Strauss, aside from the familial monopoly on the waltz (I love them), wrote music that frequently sounds like it's gathering for the big ending, when it's really just halfway home. Mozart, somewhat similarly, was master of the phony ending; one of his pieces has more than two dozen. Kids from the Lyric Opera school did the singing, and they were talented. The crowd stood up -- but they stand ...
Coming up tonight: Der Rosenkavalier with Renee Fleming, Sophie Koch & Camilla Tilling. Last night of festival. Massive party to follow.
Had a wonderful time at Der Rosenkavalier with Leslie M Phillips last night. An entire screen-full of Renee Fleming in a dress to die for singing in a voice that breaks your heart about the realities of aging and the uncertainties of love. And then, to top it all off, Leslie told me she has read the first chapter of The Year of the Crow, and loved the way I wrote about light in a world that seemed to have lost its color. I felt I had joined Renee with a bouquet of roses of my own.

Thoroughly enjoyed the repeat broadcast at Fenway of the Met's Der Rosenkavalier last night, with no intermissions though! Renee Fleming was amazing and Kristinn Sigmundsson was a great Ochs!
Dennis Conlon, Tess Colby and I went to the encore performance of Der Rosenkavalier in HD from the Metropolitan Opera tonight. It was her first opera. Renee Fleming and Susan Graham have such great chemistry that what could just be an old story is heart rending.
On my way to see Renee Fleming! (Not in person, but close enough!) Der Rosenkavalier, Live from the Met (repeat performance, though) at Tinseltown at 6:30. Anyone want to join me?! Head on over!
I'm going to cheat: Act I of Der Rosenkavalier and Act II of La Traviata.
Gilbert’s Austere Nielsen Alan Gilbert’s first major recording project since becoming music director of the New York Philharmonic is the symphonies and concertos of Denmark’s foremost composer, Carl Nielsen (1865-1931), for Dacapo. The series commenced last year with the Second Symphony (The Four Temperaments), recorded live in concert. Last week was the Third, nicknamed Sinfonia espansiva. The two are set for release on the first CD in the fall. Nielsen completed his Third in 1911, the same year as Stravinsky’s Petrushka, Sibelius’s Fourth Symphony, Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle, and Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier. Debussy was working on Book II of his Préludes and Ravel on Daphnis et Chloé. Three weeks after Nielsen finished his Third, Mahler died, leaving his Tenth Symphony unfinished.

We are excited about the up-coming Triangle Opera Studios collaboration with the Fayetteville Symphony on Friday, May 19th at 7:30 in the evening. The event will take place at the Seabrook Auditorium on the Fayetteville State campus. Our TOS singers will include my wife, the founder of TOS and a veteran of the greatest opera houses in the world, Christine Weidinger singing "Un bel di" from "Madame Butterfly"; our super-tenor Michael Rallis (Canio in our recent "Pagliacci" production) singing "Nessun dorma" as none else can (believe me!); the lovely and stupendously talented Jodi Lewis with "Vissi d'arte", Tosca's famous lament; the hypnotically beautiful and magically gifted Sarah Ittoop with the beloved "O mio babbino caro"; and the electrifying and charismatic Marie Miller as Carmen in the famous "Habanera". Lewis, Ittoop and Miller join forces to offer the final trio from "Der Rosenkavalier" - one of the most beautiful esembles for female voices ever composed; and Weidinger and Rallis sing the exciting ...
