As well as spending time in Vienna, Classicalify also made a trip to Copenhagen and while CD-browsing found this new, glorious Rosenkavalier recording.

Conductor John Pritchard, London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Glyndebourne Chorus.

Montserrat Caballé, Otto Edelmann, Teresa Zylis-Gara, John Modenos, Edith Mathis, David Hughes, Angela Jenkins, John Andrew, Anna Reynolds.

Recorded in the 1965 Festival, this production of Der Rosenkavalier was the last directed by Carl Ebert and was hailed as one of his finest achievements. Conducted by John Pritchard this recording features a notable Glyndebourne debut by Montserrat Caballé as the Marschallin with Edith Matthis as Sophie, Teresa Żylis-Gara as Octavian and Otto Edelmann as Baron Ochs.
