Strauss: 4 Last Songs / Orchestral Songs / Rosenkavalier Suite


Strauss: 4 Last Songs / Orchestral Songs / Rosenkavalier Suite by RCA / BMG at Blaumane Music. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. 1996,10 songs This lower-priced repackaging is most welcome, and fans of either Richard Strauss's songs or Renée Fleming should jump for joy. The wonderful American soprano's voice and particular gifts are tailor-made for Strauss's long, flowing, arching melodies. Indeed, in the Four Last Songs, as far as breath control is concerned, Fleming almost outdoes Jessye Norman; with regard to beauty of tone, she gives Gundula Janowitz a run for her money; and interpretively even Elisabeth Schwarzkopf


Product Description & Reviews

1996,10 songs This lower-priced repackaging is most welcome, and fans of either Richard Strauss's songs or Renée Fleming should jump for joy. The wonderful American soprano's voice and particular gifts are tailor-made for Strauss's long, flowing, arching melodies. Indeed, in the Four Last Songs, as far as breath control is concerned, Fleming almost outdoes Jessye Norman; with regard to beauty of tone, she gives Gundula Janowitz a run for her money; and interpretively even Elisabeth Schwarzkopf would be proud. Fleming's voice is absolutely evenly produced, her sense of legato is ravishing (and occasionally--but only occasionally--slightly too Italianate and voluptuous for these songs), and her intelligence is keen. The five other songs, originally composed with piano accompaniment but later orchestrated by Strauss, are just as splendidly done. I doubt if "Wiegenlied" will ever be sung so beautifully again. An unimportant reading of the suite from Der Rosenkavalier rounds out this CD. --Robert Levine
