This concert programme dedicated to the second half of the 19th Century was one of the highlights of the 2012 Salzburg Festival.
Mariss Jansons, chief conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra and winner of the Cannes Classical Award, and soprano Nina Stemme offer a “superlative concert experience” (Kurier).
Swedish soprano Nina Stemme is outstanding in her performance of Wagner’s Wesendonck-Lieder. Brilliant readings of Richard Strauss’ tone poem Don Juan and Johannes Brahms symphony No. 1 complete this extraordinary concert performance.

“Gorgeous sounds also emerge during Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, though they're mostly confined to the orchestra; their silky diminuendos are wonderful. Nina Stemme also shines when the dynamics are scaled back...As usual, the Blu-ray edition offers much greater visual sparkle.”
