Essential Richard Strauss
Essential Richard Strauss
"4CD set. Previn conducts the VPO in outstanding performances of seven magnificent Strauss works. Arguably, the best compilation of Strauss' tone poems, plus Auger on "Four Last Songs"."
Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra; Ein Heldenleben
Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra; Ein Heldenleben
"The Reiner/Chicago on RCA Living Stereo is simply hard to beat. Marvelous performance! I also recommend the Previn (Telarc), Steinberg (DGG Originals), Karajan (Decca Legends), Solti (Double Decca)."

Strauss: Don Quixote / Schumann: Cello Concerto
Strauss: Don Quixote / Schumann: Cello Concerto
""The recording of Strauss' Don Quixote is outstanding. Rostropovich did a wonderful job being the crazed knight and bringing the listener right into the story.""
Strauss: Don Quixote / Don Juan
Strauss: Don Quixote / Don Juan
""The Don Juan is the blistering 1954 version as opposed to the well played but less inspired 1960 remake with the same performers.""
Strauss: Ein Heldenleben; Tod Und Verklarung
Strauss: Ein Heldenleben; Tod Und Verklarung
""This is, without doubt, my favorite recording of Ein Heldenleben, better than Karajan's, although I wouldn't want to be without it, either.""
Strauss: Wind Concertos
Strauss: Wind Concertos
""From the opening Horn Concerto, this Straussian rendering of his wind compositions is simply put, exhilirating listening! I can't get enough of hearing it.""
Sarah Chang ~ Strauss - Violin Concerto, Sonata in E flat / Sawallisch
Sarah Chang ~ Strauss - Violin Concerto, Sonata in E flat / Sawallisch
""The Sonata, written when Strauss was 23, is much more successful and deserves to be a mainstay of the violin literature.""
Richard Strauss: Music for Symphonic Brass
Richard Strauss: Music for Symphonic Brass
""Thanks to this recording, several great unknown works by R. Strauss are finally available to the general public. I have no idea why these pieces are ignored in concert halls and recording studios.""
Richard Strauss: Serenade, Sontina, Suite, Symphony / London Winds
Richard Strauss: Serenade, Sontina, Suite, Symphony / London Winds
""The playing is facile and nuanced, with the flexibility one would expect in a chamber performance with some of London's top wind players. Top notch!""
Strauss: The Concertos

Strauss: Four Last Songs / Wagner: Wesendonck Lieder; Tristan und Isolde- Prelude & Liebestod

Strauss: Four Last Songs / Arabella / Ariadne auf Naxos / Capriccio
Strauss: Four Last Songs / Arabella / Ariadne auf Naxos / Capriccio
""Although there are some terrific Strauss sopranos around these days, no one should be without della Casa. She DEFINES Strauss singing. Don't deny yourself this superlative musical experience.""
Strauss: 4 Last Songs / Brentano Lieder / Orchestra Lieder
Strauss: 4 Last Songs / Brentano Lieder / Orchestra Lieder
""I will keep on coming back to this disc. It is a fascinating document of great artists not always at their best, but at times arrestingly brilliant." Popp's last recording."
Strauss: Josephs Legende [Legend of Joseph]
Strauss: Josephs Legende [Legend of Joseph]
""It is Strauss going full blast. The same can be said for Sinopoli and the Staatskapelle Dresden and the performance is a stunner.""
