Strauss, R:

Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40

Tod und Verklärung, Op. 24


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

Hungarian Dances (excerpts)

Strauss, R:

Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche, Op. 28

Tod und Verklärung, Op. 24

DVOŘÁK: Five Slavonic Dances


Renowned for the precision of his execution, it was said that Reiner could ‘stand before an orchestra he has never seen before and conduct a new piece at first sight without verbal explanation, by means of manual technique alone’ (he later taught at the Curtis Institute, where he unsuccessful attempted to moderate the young Leonard Bernstein). His temper was equally legendary (he was once described as ‘A despot with a baton’), but his performances, perhaps because of his uncannily tiny beat, were models of clarity and precision, never losing sight of the longer line, and always renowned for their glittering vitality.

The recordings here are the sum of his orchestral recordings made for the Decca Record Company. His Strauss is searing, and the thrill of the Brahms and Dvorak Dances has perhaps never been equaled – helped immeasurably, of course, by Decca’s state-of-the-art recording.

“These are brilliant performances with every member of this great orchestra on his toes, and the 1961 recording wears remarkably well” Gramophone Magazine (Brahms, Dvorak)

“I was bowled over by the splendour of the performances and gratified by the warmth and clarity of the recording … There is splendid ambience and range, a good stereo spread, clean definition and body. Both performances are immediately gripping: they are obviously of great distinction and I would go even further and say that they are inspired. Reiner was a Strauss conductor of quite exceptional insight and sympathy : his Tod und Verklärung seems to me the finest in the catalogue without exception and Till Eulenspiegel is certainly the equal of the finest both in terms of characterisation, orchestral playing and recording.” Gramophone Magazine (Strauss)

“Inexplicably divided into two short discs (previously one long one), these are ideally stylish and warm-hearted performances. The Strauss tone poems are highly charismatic.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2013 ****

“Reiner made many classic recordings of Strauss's music, and I think one of the best is this dramatic, fiery performance of Tod und Verklärung with the Vienna Philharmonic. With biting brass and radiant strings, it's an exhilarating experience.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, April 2014

“There is much to enjoy in Jiri Kout's forthright way with Strauss. He leads an overtly pictorial performance of Don Quixote with a buoyant, flexible beat. His purposeful phrasing always holds interest...Still, Kout's mastery proves not quite comprehensive. An occasional lack of rhythmic grounding makes the musical strands line up imprecisely.” MusicWeb International, June 2012
