Item# 10058130


Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier. Berlin, Fürstner. [1924] Folio. 422pp. First edition. A little shaken, spine a little loose. Original grey cloth cover.

A good copy of a score that is usually found in poor condition as the dire economy in post WWI Germany led to poor printing conditions and the use of lower quality paper and materials.
 

Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier

Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s bittersweet comedy, first staged in 1911, masterfully combines humor (of both the sophisticated and the slapstick kind) with genuine emotion and human drama. The ravishing final trio of the three leading female voices is among the most celebrated pieces in the operatic repertoire.
