South West German Radio Symphony Orchestra Baden-Baden and Freiburg, Francois-Xavier Roth

This CD marks the beginning of a new recording cycle of the complete symphonic poems of Richard Strauss as performed by the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg and their principal conductor, François-Xavier Roth.

Future volumes will be released during the coming years, at the rate of two CDs per year. Already in his first release with hänssler CLASSIC of Mahler's 1st Symphony, the French conductor has made it clear that he has both the strength as well as the sensitivity to build delicate orchestral colors – exactly what is necessary with Richard Strauss’ works. And with his orchestra, Roth has one of the best ensembles in Germany.

“the combination of his muscly, forward-moving approach, with not an ounce of fat on it, and perhaps most stunning engineering accorded to the master orchestrator yet, mean that both the mock-epic composer hero of Ein Heldenleben and the dying man of Tod und Verklärung make their momentous journeys without sag or stress...these performances pulse with ideal life.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

“What I particularly like about this performance is its musical honesty...Roth draws extremely fine playing from his orchestra” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

“a major Wagnerian” Financial Times

“It's a long time since we’ve had such a richly-gilded sound in this repertoire, darker colours in the lower register moving seamlessly to luminous tone above the stave… The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under Runnicles sounds equally glorious, in warmly lit and irreproachably balanced sound that lends a striking realism to the individual colours of the woodwind solos...” BBC Music Magazine, October 2006 *****
