In the courtyard of the palace of Agamemnon, murdered king of Mycenae, Elektra bemoans her father's murder at the hands of her mother, Klytämnestra, and her mother's lover, Aegisth. She vows vengeance. She is interrupted by her younger sister, Chrysothemis, who urges Elektra to give up her obsession with revenge so they both can lead normal lives. Chrysothemis reappears with news that Orest is dead. Stunned, Elektra tells her sister she must now help kill Klytämnestra and Aegisth. When the girl pulls away in terror and runs off, Elektra starts to dig for the buried ax that killed Agamemnon. She is interrupted by a stranger who says he has come to inform Klytämnestra of Orest's death. When Elektra reveals her name, he tells her Orest lives. Servants come and kiss his hand. The dogs of the house know me, he says, but not my own sister. Crying his name, Elektra falls into Orest's arms and tells him she has lived only for his return. Their reunion is cut short when Orest is summoned before Klytämnestra. He kills both the queen and her lover. Elektra begins an ecstatic dance and when Chryothemis returns, Elektra falls dead

"Dies ist eine Aufnahme, von der man als Hörer sehr viel lernen kann. Es ist gewusst, dass Musik von Richard Strauss wirklich gut klingt, wenn sie von einem Toporchester wie der Staatskapelle Dresden, dem Concertgebouw Amsterdam oder den Wiener Philharmonikern gespielt wird..... Nun kommt ein Dirigent wie Sebastian Weigle daher und legt sich mit den 'Großen"an. Er weiß genau, dass sein Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester ein hervorragender Klangkörper ist, der aber nicht mit den Wienern & Co zu vergleichen ist. Was macht also Weigle? Er akzeptiert die Grenzen seines Orchesters und versucht auch nie, darüber hinaus zu gehen. Vielmehr nutzt er die Chance und liest die 'Alpensinfonie' recht vertikal. Er verlässt somit den sicheren Pfad Strauss'scher Klangopulenz und bewegt sich auf den 'Nebenpfaden'. Und wie ein Bergführer nimmt er den Hörer mit sich und zeigt ihm die ganze Alpenwelt von einer anderen Seite. Hier hört man plötzlich ganz neuartig wirkende Farben, neue Schattierungen, Crescendi und Akzente. Alles wirkt zwar vertraut und erscheint doch in einer komplett neuen Aufmischung, die der Musik unendlich gut tut. Und so fasziniert man von den Einspielungen Karajans, Thielemanns, Kempes und vielen anderen sein kann, man muss dieser Frankfurter Aufnahme allerhöchste Integrität und künstlerisches Können zugestehen" (

Hans-Joachim Ketelsen is Mandryka, the wealthy landowner and unlikely suitor who wins Arabella's heart. Barbara Bonney sings Zdenka, Arabella's younger sister, and Raymond Very is Matteo, the officer who thinks he is in love with Arabella but unexpectedly finds his happiness elsewhere. Judith Forst and Eric Halfvarson round out the cast as Count and Countess Waldner, Arabella and Zdenka's parents. Christoph Eschenbach conducts

This classical tragedy tells of the eponymous heroine, a sunlight-worshipping virgin who has no interest in earthbound romantic relationships. Unable to return her childhood-friend Leukippos's affections, and unwilling to don a special dress for the Dionysian festival, Daphne soon encounters a mysterious stranger, in the guise of a herdsman, who makes an unsuccessful attempt to wheedle her into romance. He ultimately reveals himself as Apollo, the god of the sun, and enters a violent rivalry with Leukippos for Daphne's affections that ends tragically for all
