For nigh on thirty years there has been only one collection of Richard Strauss orchestral works that garnered almost univeral praise, that of Rudolf Kempe and the Dresden Staatskapelle. I've owned the set in both its LP and CD incarnations and have admired it immoderately. Now there is a new competitor, and it's a worthy one: David Zinman leading the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra. In making a comparison of the two sets we must first make clear the differences in contents. The Kempe set contains nine CDs, the Zinman seven. Zinman's set does not include, as Kempe's does, the horn concertos, the Burleske, the Duet Concertino, the Panathenäenzug, the Violin Concerto, a Kempe-arranged Rosenkavalier Suite, 'Le bourgeois gentilhomme' suite, excerpts from 'Josephslegende,' the 'Schlagobers' waltz, the 'Dance Suite' based on music of Couperin, or 'Dance of the Seven Veils' from 'Salome.' Kempe's set does not, unlike Zinman's, include 'Festliches Prelude,' the cello-and-orchestra 'Romance,' the late 'Wind Serenade in E Flat,' and the extremely major 'Four Last Songs.' With the exception of the 'Four Last Songs,' the 'Burleske,' and the horn concertos most collectors would not particularly miss any of the relatively minor works that appear in only one of the sets. And of course there are individual recordings of most of these works that have real merit, e.g., various of the tone poems conducted by Solti or Karajan, say.

In recent years Zinman and the Tonhalle have given us some superior recordings, e.g., the complete Beethoven and Schumann symphonies. And it is now clear that under Zinman the Tonhalle has become one of the great European orchestras.

You will notice the lack of the word "complete" in the title of this boxed set, and not all the included works fit the title. The "Four Last Songs" don't match the title, but personally, I will listen to this set of orchestral Lieder anytime; this is one of Strauss' finest works.And the Op 7 Serenade in E flat for 13 wind instruments is an anomoly.

It appears that there is no complete set available, although there have been traversals of Strass' works which have been released in single volumes at a time. You may be able to assemble all issues in such a set, but I doubt they would cover all works, and, as far as I can find, these releases are not recent.

If you are after a representative collection of the Orchestral works of Strauss, there are only two choices: this 7-disc set, recorded and released individually betwwen 2000-20002, then as a boxed set in 2003, (this issue has now been discontinued, but BMG under their subsidiary Arte Nova label have re-issued it in 2006, so I am placing this review there as well); and a 9-disc set with the Dresden Orchestra under Kempe, made back, as I recall, in the 70s. Kempe and his musicians produced a top-class series, superby played, recorded with analog technology, and the sound still bears up well. At the time of their release they were hailed both for the standard of performance and recording quality, with particular comment on the standard of the Dresden players.

However, if you want a modern recording, you will not be let down by this set. The track listing is full of errors, omitting some works, so I will append a list of works at the end of this review.

Long long time ago, I can still remember, Rudolf Kempe brought us the orchestral works of Strauss on disc when the composer was only a few years dead. I think that was in the late 50’s, but I can be a lot more precise about two recent dates. 11 June 2014 was the 150th anniversary of Strauss’s birth, and within a few days of that David Zinman stepped down as chief conductor of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, which position he had held for twenty or so years. As a monument to both here is a fitting successor to Kempe, a seven-disc set of Strauss’s work, thoughtfully selected, every disc of which can stand comparison with the best available. The price may fluctuate a little with availability, but if the odd $ or £ is that important to you I’d bet that the price will drop again to its level of early 2014.

Don’t take the legend ‘orchestral works’ too literally. The tone poems are here together with the Domestic and Alpine Symphonies, Aus Italien and the early E flat serenade for wind, but there are two outright concertos also, both the late oboe work and the ‘Parergon to the Domestic Symphony’ which can properly be called a piano concerto, and a small early ‘romance’ with a cello solo. Also here because it would have been a crime not to include it is a new performance of the celestial Four Last Songs. Among the tone poems there is one, Macbeth, that may need a word of introduction. It is the earliest of them, it is not the best of them, but does it have to be? I know the others by heart and have done for years, there are many music lovers in my position, but here is an interesting and unfamiliar extra, not yet fully characteristic (like Bartok’s Kossuth from ten years or so later) that I for one look forward to getting to know.
