Editorial Reviews

Product Description

From the Artist

"Strauss loved female voices," says Damrau, "and he explores some extreme possibilities in these many-layered songs, each with its different point of view. Sensitivity to the words is vital to telling the story of each song, to capturing the rapid changes of mood and all the colors."

This CD gets my highest recommendation!
Dr. Christopher Coleman
Diana Damrau handles it beautifully, moving through the tricky melisma with a steady, beautiful tone and winning manner.
Santa Fe Listener
In a song like "Morgen" you actually get images of sun and shining in her tone.

Format: Audio CD
It's been a while since a notable soprano made a recording of Strauss's orchestral songs. The composer had a light, silvery lyric voice in mind when he composed many of these (his wife Pauline possessed such a voice, along with a notoriously shrewish temper), and she must have been quite accomplished, given the coloratura demands of, for example, "Ich wollt ein Struasslein binden," the first item on the program. Diana Damrau handles it beautifully, moving through the tricky melisma with a steady, beautiful tone and winning manner. I haven't heard her in person, but if the microphones place her front and center, there's no issue of such a light soprano having to ride over Strauss's lush orchestral writing. She makes a good deal out of the poetry, too, which is welcome; I think this is the most expressive singing, so far as language goes, since Schwarzkopf's famous Strauss collection under Szell four decades ago.

Damrau has emerged as a star, particularly on stage, where she is said to be a compelling actress; on disc, however, I've tended to find her coy and mannered, expending too much effort on histrionics. That isn't so here. Under the expert guidance of Christian Thielemann, who has made a name for himself conducting Strauss operas around the world, the singer is bright and forward but respectful of limits. It's hard for a coloratura soprano to sound as serious as a richer voice would, but she overcomes this innate difficulty well. I wasn't as emotionally involved as with notable Straussians form the past like Schwarzkopf, Gueden, and Della Casa, yet in her lighter way Damrau is quite successful, particularly if you are listening for ravishing sound from voice and orchestra, which has certainly been supplied by EMI's excellent engineering.

Format: Audio CD
It has been some decades since a German soprano emerged as a major Richard Strauss lieder exponenet - since Schwarzkopf and Janowitz, we had Popp, then Te Kanawa, Fleming, norman, Gruberova, Isokosi.
Here, Diana Damrau sung 22 Strauss lieders in one breath, showing to the world how Germans sing Strauss lieders.
Damrau and Thielemann employed slightly crisper tempi in majority of the songs. As in Morgen, the soprano tackles the verses in ultra-fine syncopated articulations, leaving the spot light to the violin solo, in a most authentic way of interpretation of this famous piece.
After 'graduating' from the Queen of Night, Damrau moves to bel canto, following the footsteps of Edita Gruberova. In Amor, Damrau again demonstrates her fearsome coloratura technique, reminding one of her celebrated portrayal of Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos.
The album ends with six Brentano Lieders, sung to critical acclaim in the past by Edita Gruberova.
Damrau succeeds admirably in this album in showcasing how Strauss should be sung - in the authentic manner.

These are very fine recordings, done with a great deal of intelligence. Diane has a perfect voice for these songs -- clear, careful, but passionate. In a song like "Morgen" you actually get images of sun and shining in her tone. I tend to prefer Janet Baker and Gerald Moore's version of "Morgen" (simple piano is better than orchestra, I never could go for the schmaltzy violin) but she is just as good.

Some of the songs are admittedly over the top -- Cacile is pretty crazy (is this a love song or a shipwreck on the high seas?) -- and "Amor" (a tour de force for her voice) really needs to be heard in a Vienna cafe -- but it is all lovely listening.

German composer Richard Strauss had an affinity for the voice throughout his entire career. Among his earliest works are some very lovely songs, including one for soprano, horn and piano, and his final work is the glorious Four Last Songs. He composed 15 operas and a large number of individual songs. Some forty of these songs were either originally composed with an orchestral accompaniment or arranged from piano originals; it is from this body of work that this Virgin Classics CD draws its repertoire. And what a repertoire it is--beautiful, heartfelt works, many written specifically for the composer's wife, Pauline--each a miniature masterpiece seldom heard in concert. For those who can't stomach an entire opera, these are perfect bite-sized morsels--the longest song on this CD is only seven minutes, and only one other is as long as five minutes. While many people think of Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, as the king of long-windedness, yet here is an entire body of works each as beautiful and compact as a diamond.

Soprano Diane Damrau is a young German artist, an operatic lyric soprano who is primarily drawn to Mozart, and unsurprisingly, Strauss. This is her fourth recording, and I look forward to many more. I can't praise her singing highly enough--her voice seems literally created for these songs. She exhibits a rare combination of delicacy that the texts so often call for matched by the strength to balance a full romantic orchestra. Her sense of musical line, her phrasing and sensitivity all place her in the highest rank of Strauss interpreters. Those of you who have read my previous reviews know that I am a stern critic and do not easily lavish such praise, but I find nothing to criticize about this disc other than the lack of information about the singer!
