At The Opera, Richard Strauss: Capriccio, December 14, 2013


Capriccio is the final opera by German composer Richard Strauss, subtitled "A Conversation Piece for Music". The opera received its premiere performance at the Nationaltheater München on October 28, 1942. Clemens Krauss and Strauss wrote the German libretto. However, the genesis of the libretto came from Stefan Zweig in the 1930s, and Joseph Gregor further developed the idea several years later. Strauss then took on the libretto, but finally recruited Krauss as his collaborator on the opera. This 1958 recording stars Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Eberhard Wachter and Nicolai Gedda. Wolfgang Sawallisch conducts.
