Richard Strauss provides the red thread in this film through some of the performers. To start with the German soprano, Elisabeth Scharzkopf, whose career has been closely linked with the composer of The Cavalier of the Rose, since her premiere as Zerbinette in Ariane in Naxos which marks her real beginnings in 1944 in Vienna, until the Four Last Songs. In 1947, she signed an exclusive contract with EMI thanks to her agent who later became her husband, Walter Legge, the producer whose name is closely associated with the golden age of the record.
