Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment will present R. Strauss’ own salon arrangement of the opera, Der Rosenkavalier, that was specifically done for the Stummfilm (silent movie). Today as impressive as ever, DER ROSENKAVALIER remains one of the exceptional productions to have emerged from the Austrian silent film era. It’s a great film and a wonderful score which was restored in 2006 and shown in Dresden. The movie was first shown in 1926. In the second part, there will be 8 art songs by R. Strauss.
The OAE has shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world. Residencies at the Southbank Centre and Glyndebourne haven’t numbed its experimentalist bent. Record deals haven’t iron out its quirks. Period-specific instruments have become just one element of its quest for authenticity. Today the OAE is cherished more than ever. It still pushes for change, and still stands for excellence, diversity and exploration.
