Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest

Recorded Live at Dutch National Opera & Ballet on 12, 24 & 27 June 2017

After the resounding success with Verdi’s Falstaff (Dutch National Opera, 2014) the Concertgebouworkest and Daniele Gatti once again proved their operatic prowess at DNO in Richard Strauss’s Salome, a work which caused a sensation in 1905. The libretto was dark and bold, the music modern and the Dance of the Seven Veils too provocative for the bourgeois audiences of Vienna. Never before had the decadent Zeitgeist been rendered musically in such a confrontational way. Composers from various countries flocked to attend the premiere, and Strauss lived up to their high expectations. To this day, the work possesses formidable power, thanks to the demanding leading role: in this production spectacularly sung ánd acted by Malin Byström.

Also available on DVD (RCO 18103) and CD (RCO 18101).
