Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra present this acclaimed live 2016 recording of orchestral suites based on two of the most significant operas in history. Der Rosenkavalier found its place in the concert hall from the beginning, first with two waltz sequences and later with the famous 1944 suite, but Elektra remained purely on the opera stage until now, thanks to Honeck’s own symphonic adaptation in collaboration with Czech composer Tomás Ille.

“On an album where the highlights come thick and fast, the world class Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra under Manfred Honeck is on magnificent form. Playing with astonishing virtuosity this opulent performance of Elektra, full and expressive, is brilliantly executed. Its climaxes are stunningly powerful, generating a tension which feels overwhelming. Conversely the Rosenkavalier waltzes have a poignant bittersweet quality that is entirely captivating … Honeck and his Pittsburgh players combine for a stunning album which should be an essential purchase for Strauss devotees.”  – MusicWeb International

“Five Stars … a brilliant performance of both works … unbelievably concise and brilliant arrangement of music from the difficult, astringent opera Elektra … I must say that (Honeck’s) results smack of a perceptive intelligence that knows and understands this thorny piece very well and the 34 minutes are quite stirring … the Pittsburghians are simply phenomenal, proving once again that there is no orchestra in America that surpasses them … the depth, breadth and range of dynamics are astounding, making for an orchestral presence shakenly realistic … a real barnburner of a release, captured to perfection … fantastic! Get this.”  – Audiophile Audition
