‘Der Rosenkavalier’ Nominated for 2019 Grammy Award

The Metropolitan Opera Recording of Der Rosenkavalier has been nominated for the 2019 Grammy Award for “Best Opera Recording.”

The recording features Elīna Garanča’s “sublime” (WQXR) performance as Octavian, alongside Renée Fleming as the Marschallin, Erin Morley as Sophie, Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs, and Matthew Polenzani as the Italian Singer. The New York Times praised Elīna’s performance as a “revelation,” proclaiming her “plush, sensual voice ideal for this vocally demanding music.”
