Hamburg State Philharmonic Orchestra, Chorus of Hamburg State Opera, Eugen Jochum (conductor)

This historic recording of Richard Strauss’s opera Electra comes from a production from Hamburg in Germany in 1944. It is performed by a high-class cast including the soprano Erna Schlüter in the title role and the alto Gusta Hammer as Clytomnestra. The Hamburg State Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus of Hamburg State Opera are directed by the legendary conductor Eugen Jochum.

The Hamburg Opera House always set great store by the presentation of the latest works. As early as 1907 it staged the first performance of Richard Strauss’s Salome and in 1909 that of the same composer’s Elektra. This tendency to put on new compositions was retained after both world wars, and in Hamburg Richard Strauss found an especially keen cultivation of his works, many of which he conducted there himself.
