Den Rosenkavalier

Strauss weaves in particularly dissonant symbolic motives throughout much of the piece in a sort of disorienting way. I enjoy the “crystalline” textures in the percussion during some of the dialogue. The melodic lines in the voice are incredibly well crafted, especially during the final trio, which is particularly magical. Here the layering of the melodic lines is incredibly powerful and anchored nicely in the instrumental accompaniment.
