I’ve made a vow …

‘Richard Strauss’ and ‘comic’ are not normally heard in the same sentence, but when it comes to Der Rosenkavalier, they are.  There isn’t really a back story to today’s post, apart from the fact I love this trio. And I did find a rather sad looking rose this afternoon – the last of the season perhaps? And we don’t have anything by Richard on the playlist so far.

Interesting fact: Richard is not related to the Viennese waltzing family of the same name, but I bet it didn’t do him any harm at the start of his career.

YT offers us two splendid recordings of the trio: The Schwarzkopf and the Fleming.
