Richard Strauss in 3-Quarter Time

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Richard Strauss's opera "Der Rosenkavalier" (dair ROH-sen-kah-vah-leer) contains some very infectious waltzes. In 1945, the composer sanctioned a concert suite, assembled from those waltzes plus other great melodies from the opera. We feature a performance of the Suite by the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Michael Schxnwandt, in concert in Copenhagen. (EBU)
