You have to hand it to Strauss: using his success as the basis for a 40-minute tone poem suggests no limit to confidence. It was, of course, the end of the century (1898) and a self-celebratory mood was in the air. Yet there's no lack of conviction in the music either. From a powerful opening depicting "the hero" (the composer), we move through a vicious scherzo–the critics!–to an extended love scene with the hero's companion.

Gundula Janowitz had a very beautiful voice that critics like to describe as "creamy," whatever that means. Strauss had a life-long love affair with the soprano voice. He even married one–not just the voice, the whole woman, of course. His Four Last Songs constitute his dying tribute, and they are probably the most hedonistically gorgeous vocal works in existence.

Sinopoli interpretations of these two Strauss tone poems are magnificent and are recorded with clarity. What I find most impressive is the way Sinopoli approaches a score as if it were a brand-new document waiting to be brought to life. - Gramophone

There are those who would argue that the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan was a magnificent instrument for the later Romantics Brahms, Bruckner, Wagner, and Strauss. There are others, however, who would argue that Karajan and the BPO were too magnificent for the earlier Romantics Mendelssohn, Schumann, and especially Schubert. They would say that the lushly, plushly, voluptuously sensual sound of the BPO simply overwhelmed the lighter, brighter, and more lyrical early Romantics. And while a few might concede that the BPO may be acceptable in Mendelssohn’s Italian or Schumann’s Rhenish, even they would say that they were all wrong for Schubert.

Commanding the podium with his slender figure, theatrical shock of hair and penetrating blue eyes, Herbert von Karajan projected the hieratic image of the conductor as officiant of some quasi-mystic rite. And anyone who ever saw him conduct live or on his many audiovisual recordings will agree that in his performances, music did indeed become a religion and Karajan its high-priest. Karajan (1908-1989) embodied classical music in the general consciousness as an epoch-making conductor, media star, opera producer, festival director and festival founder.

One of his peculiarities was that he usually conducted concerts with his eyes closed, vexing many orchestra musicians. However, through Karajan’s intense rehearsals they were thoroughly prepared for performances. “His philosophy was that everything the orchestra needs had to happen beforehand,” the string bassist Rudolf Watzel recalled. Under Herbert von Karajan the Berliner Philharmoniker developed their very own performance culture, characterised by a beauty of sound, enchanting legati, virtuosity and perfection. He preferred to concentrate on the classical-romantic repertoire: Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Wagner and Strauss. In addition, he devoted himself to the Second Viennese School and leading composers of the early 20th century like Ravel, Stravinsky and Debussy, taking occasional excursions into the contemporary era with works by Messiaen and Henze, even Penderecki.

Acclaimed Berlin Philharmonic conductor Herbert von Karajan leads a stellar cast – including mezzo-soprano Agnes Baltsa and sopranos Anna Tomowa-Sintow and Janet Perry – in this memorable 1984 production of "Der Rosenkavalier." Recorded at Austria's Salzburger Festpiele, composer Richard Strauss' comic opera tells a tale about love between an aging noblewoman, her handsome lover, a bumbling baron and a wealthy merchant's beautiful daughter.
