Since 1947, Olszewska taught at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna and in 1948 she became a lecturer at the Vienna State Opera. From 1951 to 1955, she again appeared at the Vienna Volksoper, singing roles like Agricola in Johann Strauss II's A Night in Venice. She retired from the stage in 1955, after which she devoted her time to teaching. She died in Klagenfurt.

Elisabeth Schumann, Lotte Lehmann’s almost exact contemporary, had extensive experience as a Mozartian - Zerlina, Susanna – and this held her in superb stead for Sophie with a voice of glorious purity. Mayr’s portrayal has rather divided opinion over the years

Pristine has now issued one of the most famous opera recordings ever made, the 1933 abridged version of Der Rosenkavalier made in Vienna with some of the most famous interpreters of the leading roles as listed above. Strauss was to have conducted, but his high fee prohibited this, so Robert Hegar took over. This is an essential recording for lovers of the opera but this Pristine Audio issue offers only the abbreviated opera with a total playing time of about 100 minutes with no fillers. It is surprising that this new issue doesn't have them.

Lehmann was the obvious choice for the Marschallin; Elisabeth Schumann as Sophie and Richard Mayr as Baron Ochs were almost as inevitable. In the happy choice of Maria Olszewska as Octavian, HMV found an aristocratic sounding mezzo whose sound was sufficiently different from that of Lehmann and Schumann, but who provided a complete blending in the duets and trios.
