ANAM Radio: Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier (Ep 1 2021)

Episode 1, 2021: Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier

Wednesday 24 March 2021

In 1911 Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier (The Cavalier of the Rose) premiered in Dresden, Germany. A bittersweet romantic comedy set in the 1740s in old Vienna, a half-real and half-imagined Utopia, one that Strauss and Der Rosenkavalier’s librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal are nostalgic of.   

In this new episode of ANAM Radio, Phil Lambert (ANAM Music Librarian) talks to renowned oboist Nigel Shore and former ANAM Artistic Director Nick Deutsch about Nigel’s wind arrangement of Der Rosenkavalier. Nigel discusses how the oboe, clarinet and horn are the protagonists in operas, just as much as the singers, and Nick shares his most memorable performances of this masterpiece throughout his career.

Nigel Shore’s wind arrangement of Der Rosenkavalier premiered in Melbourne in April 2021.
