Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss( )

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound

Die Ägyptische Helena by Richard Strauss( )

Deborah Voigt brings sumptuous vocalism and dramatic presence to the title role of Strauss and Hofmannsthal's re-imagination of the Helen myth. Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, the story is based on the premise that the Helen who came to Troy was a phantom, while the real, faithful one was spirited away. After the war, she is reunited with her husband, Menelas, sung by Torsten Kerl. Diana Damrau is Aithra, the sorceress who helps Helen regain Menelas's love, and Wolfgang Brendel sings Altair, a desert chieftain who falls in love with Helen. Fabio Luisi conducts the ravishing score
