Richard Strauss: Elektra
by Decca

Release Date

Customer Reviews
If ever there was a dysfunctional family, it was the one in this opera, based on a Greek tragedy but deeply imbued with the ideas of Sigmund Freud. The mother Clytemnestra (mezzo-soprano Regina Resnik) and her lover Aegisthus (tenor Gerhard Stolze) have murdered the father, Agamemnon, on his triumphant return from the Trojan War. They have an excuse: Agamemnon gave his daughter Iphigenia for a human sacrifice. Another daughter, Elektra (soprano Birgit Nilsson), burns for revenge, but as a woman in a patriarchal society, she must use her brother Orestes (baritone Tom Krause) to execute her plan. Nilsson's portrayal is a high point of her career, and the whole brilliant production matches her performance. This is not easy listening, but it puts us in touch with dark realities dangerous to ignore, and the music (after you get used to it, which may take a while) has great power. <I>--Joe McLellan</I>

Orff: Carmina Burana
by Deutsche Grammophon

Release Date

August 10, 1999

Product Description
Customer Reviews
With this recording, Christian Thielemann (known for delivering fresh, must-hear/controversial interpretations) challenges Herbert Von Karajan - who was unable to resist performing this work by Orff - but also Eugen Jochum (Jochum's Deutsche Grammophon recording of Carmina Burana with the same chorus and orchestra as Thielemann's Carmina was, for years, the yardstick by which all other recordings were measured). This is, indeed, a superb performance and the sound is overwhelming in it's impact.
