A rich if occasionally awkward Viennese antique
28 January 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A busman's holiday for the great Viennese conductor non-pareil Carlos Kleiber. Luckily video director Karl-Heinz Hundorf knew as much and makes frequent forays into the pit to pick up the joy and ease with which Kleiber trips through the score.

It's a slightly different matter on stage. Rosenkavalier is a comedy rendered in the time-honoured Viennese fashion, with 'one eye dry, the other wet', joy and wistfulness inextricably bound. Fassbaender and Lucia Popp just achieve this although Manfred Jungwirth's Ochs' pomposity is a bit stock-in-trade. Gwyneth Jones tackles the complexity of the Marschallin well, although tends to be stern and aloof.

The production is a reproduction of the original and it feels a little dated. However, it is nonetheless rich, like the essentials of this good performance caught by an enlightened director. 4/10
