One of Richard Strauss's supreme achievements, Der Rosenkavalier (The Knight of the Rose) is a romantic story of love and intrigue, a miraculous bend of comedy and gentle melancholy set in the time of Mozart. Gerard Schwarz's Suite captures much of the poignancy and drama of the opera, first performed in 1911. In 1944, during the appalling circumstances of war, Strauss turned to arranging music from his earlier works. His Waltz Sequences bring together the dances which give Der Rosenkavalier so much of its charm.
