RenTe Fleming finally appears on DVD in one of her greatest roles the Marschallin, in Richard Strauss's magnificent comedy of ever-changing love, Der Rosenkavalier. Her peerless performance is supported by a galactic cast (conductor Christian Thielemann), which includes Diana Damrau, Sophie Koch, Franz Hawlata and Jonas Kaufmann as the Italian Tenor. Filmed in January 2009 at the Baden-Baden Festival, the production features a stylish pastiche of vast mirrors, Viennese Baroque decorations, Hollywood-esque staircases and early 20th century evening wear. RenTe's eminent Strauss collaborator on her recent Four Last Songs album, Christian Thielemann, joins her onceagain, conducting the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. This performance with Christian Thielemann and the Mnnchner Philharmoniker is luscious, supremely confident, lived-in and well thought out Fleming is in glorious voice, pouring out Strauss's long phrases with voluminous generosity and fearless commitment to the extremes of range.
