Description
Appearing in her signature role, Evelyn Lear is the aristocratic Feldmarschallin, and Frederica von Stade stars as her young lover Octavian, in this performance of Richard Strauss's comic opera, recorded in 1976 at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam. Bass Jules Bastin sings the part of Baron Ochs, his own favorite among his roles, and José Carreras is the Italian singer in Act 1. No libretto is included, but the liner notes offer an extended plot synopsis and a history of the opera.

"Frederica von Stade's light, honeyed mezzo [conveys] Octavian's impetuosity like none other. No recording so effectively captures the sense of two frightened teenagers—von Stade and Ruth Welting as Sophie—beyond their ken. Jules Bastin is an attractively baritonal Ochs."—Gramophone (UK)

"From the beginning, de Waart leads the music with a clear idea of where he is going next; it never drags, and it never rushes any more than necessary to keep the action moving at a good pace. The youthfulness of most of these performers plus the practiced skills of the veterans makes this a lively and rewarding recording."—Allmusic.com
