I am astounded that this superb Rosenkavalier has been absent so long from the catalogue and, moreover, that it is not a first choice. Bernstein can be an idiosyncratic conductor, but his worst excesses are kept well in check and the Vienna Philharmonic play beautifully for him. Christa Ludwig and Gwyneth Jones as, respectively, the Marschallin and Oktavian represent unexpected casting, as they were both famous exponents of the other's role, but it is a gamble that comes off magnificently, whilst Lucia Popp is a peerless Sophie. Walter Berry recorded a lot of baritone roles and was, of course, a celebrated Papageno, but the depths of Ochs hold no fears for him and he is, for me, the best Ochs on disc and one of the few to sound plausibly young. An echt Wiener, he is totally at home with the idiom, as are the host of supporting players, all stalwarts of the Vienna Opera. Placido Domingo represents luxury casting as the Italian Tenor. The sound is good and at this price, it is an absolute bargain.

This set took some recording, as John Culshaw's original notes inthe lp set made clear. Some early reviewers used these problems as clubs with which to beat the recording. Many years later, listened to simply as a cd recording, these criticisms seem somewhat carping. This recording is as vibrant now as it was in 1971. The sound is full and rich, but clear - the Decca Wagner crew made this for CBS. If you like the sound of the Solti Wagner sets they made, you'll like the sound here.
Bernstein is so very musical from start to finish, a true servant of what Strauss wrote. There can be no doubting his total commitment here, as a few groans here and there make plain, he is not in the Colin Davis or John Barbirolli league, though!
Each bar is alive with music, nothing is routine or plain. The VPO clearly loved Bernstein to their boots. The Uber-conservative VPO took no prisoners, but the Non-uber-conservative Bernstein seems to charm them to the core. Listen to the Presentation of the Silver Rose in Act 2, you'll be amazed at the sheer beauty and grace of it. The final pages are performed with a depth of expression rarely heard on cd.
The singing cast is unusual but rewarding. In the one-number Tenor Singer role, Domingo is thrilling and searing. The main cast members, of course, however, make or break this work.
Christa Ludwig is, to me, very satisfactory as the Marschallin. She sings musically and with great taste. Does this suggest a certain lack of character? I think it does, actually, but others will disagree strongly. Gwyneth Jones is superb as Octavian, warm and romantic. Unless you are allergic to her voice - some are - she is to be treasured. Lucia Popp is stunning as Sophie, just stunning! Her voice shines as silver amidst the Viennese browns and golds.

There are 2 "5 Star reviews" of this set as I write, but they must be treated with extreme caution.
If you are a dedicted Straussian as I am, and want all possible spectra of interpretation of this great work then buy without hesitation-but this has never been every Straussian's favourite performance let alone those less than committed! I've got pretty well all the recordings of this work, including several "unofficial" live ones.
The set followed hot on the heals of Solti's Decca 69 recording-still sounding brilliant in its last remastering.Vocally the Solti is superb-if we are talking about luxury casting for the Italian Tenor it has Pavarotti in his prime!- and unlike other rivals it is absolutely complete-NO CUTS (for good or ill!)
Solti's reading is too matter of fact and "un-viennese" for many tastes.Critics have always been at pains to stress that this is NOT a great chocolate truffle of a bitter-sweet late romantic comedy, but rather a more acerbic, intellectual examination of manners, morals etc.Solti and Bohm are the arch -exponents of this view. HHmmm.I'm very fond of Sacher Torte myself!
Haitink is just a bit dull, Karajan is perfectly balanced in-between. (I am in the excellent company of Michael Kennedy, Straussian par excellence, in much preferring Karajan's Vienna recording of this work, but we are a minority!)
Bernstein is exactly the opposite of Solti-this is a great romantic wallow of almost unparalelled lushness!Bernstein pushes chocolate box Romanticism about as far as it will go-then adds whipped cream!

I approached this 1971 recording with some trepidation but was encouraged by previous reviewer Stewart Crowe and I thank him for his assurance that I would enjoy it - he was so right. I do not claim that it is perfect or that it necessarily supersedes previous admired versions, but it takes its place amongst my favourites and has some things to offer found nowhere else. It will not suit all tastes, but as a Bernstein fan I was neither surprised by nor disappointed with Lennie's treatment of this miraculous score: he does what I hoped, which is to milk it for all its worth without allowing it to become so soupy that it loses its edge or charm.

Let's start with its undoubted strengths: first and above all, the enchanting, silver-voiced Sophie of the incomparable Lucia Popp. Hers is simply the finest Sophie on disc. For those of us unable to accept the muddy sound and infamous, very flat last, climactic note from Popp in the concluding trio on the live Salzburg set conducted by Dohnanyi, this is the answer if you want a souvenir of her artistry in this role. Secondly, and if you like it, Bernstein's coaxing of the Vienna Philharmonic to produce a gorgeous noise. The 15 minutes performance cuts traditional at that time are duly observed and I cannot say that I am too bothered by that in such a long score; all the moments of heart-stopping Schmalz are there intact and this operaphile hippo is happy to wallow along with Bernstein. Finally, the sound is superb for its - or any - era.

We enter more controversial territory with the casting of the other two leading ladies.
