In 2011 the Berliner Philharmoniker and their musical director Sir Simon Rattle welcomed in the New Year with a gala concert programmed with ‘Dances & Dreams’.

Spinetingling and inspiring performances of music by Dvořák, Ravel, Richard Strauss, Stravinsky and Brahms are complemented by the extraordinary talent of the multi-awarded Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin. Kissin’s musicality, the depth and poetic quality of his interpretations, and his extraordinary virtuosity have placed him at the forefront of today’s pianists, and his passionate performance of the renowned Piano Concerto in A minor by Edvard Grieg is mesmerizing.

“Where Rattle and company radiate love, Kissin gives us duty. Still, nothing else casts a chill. Hearing the orchestra's splendours, observing the smiles and eye contact, you'd never believe the past stories of turbulence between musicians and conductor...The Blu-ray edition, as always, is markedly crisper” BBC Music Magazine, January 2013 ****

It is often said that Richard Strauss had a lifelong love affair with the soprano voice, and it is certainly true that many of his finest operatic roles were written with that voice in mind. In addition, the quality of his writing for sopranos regularly shows their instruments off to maximum advantage. Sopranos have genuine cause to the grateful to him.

Collected here are some of Strauss’s greatest heroines – whether regal (the Marschallin in Rosenkavalier), demented (Salome and Elektra), or crafty (the Empress in Frau ohne Schatten). These highlights feature not only great solo scenes (the final scene of Salome, Elektra’s monologue) but also some sublime ensembles (Arabella, Ariadne auf Naxos, the closing scene of Rosenkavalier). The singers represent some of the leading Strauss sopranos of their day – Della Casa, Guede, Crespin, Söderström, Silja and, of course, Nilsson – as well as some of the great Strauss conductors: Solti, Böhm, Dohnányi. Many of the recordings were made by the Wiener Philharmoniker in one of Decca’s iconic recording venues, the Sofiensaal, over a period of some twenty years

All tracks recorded between 6th and 17th September, 1943 in the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam

Leonore Overture No. 2, Op. 72a

Brahms:

Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68

Strauss, R:

Salome: Dance of the Seven Veils


Karajan’s war-time recordings took him to Berlin, Dresden and Turin and, in 1943, to Amsterdam to work with the highly renowned Concertgebouw Orchestra, a great orchestra then as now.

This exciting account of Brahms’s First Symphony, with its impeccable ensemble and intense, singing engagement with the music’s linearity, more than holds its own in the light of Karajan’s four later recordings, made in London, Vienna and twice in Berlin.

It is here coupled with a potent Leonore Overture No. 3, notable for its off-the-leash impetuosity, and a seductive and tension-filled excerpt from Salome.

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, Bernard Haitink, Eugen Jochum, Karl Munchinger, Gieuseppe Sinopoli

Beginning with two rascally characters - the deluded Don Quixote and the prankster Till Eulenspiegel, this set includes remarkable recordings from the catalogues of Philips and Deutsche Grammophon, with some recordings appearing on CD internationally for the first time - Haitink's "Don Quixote", Jochum's blazing "Till Eulenspiegel" and shimmering Rosenkavalier Waltzes (both sets) and Munchinger's recording of the sextet from Capriccio. Sinopoli's "Metamorphosen", previously coupled with Bruckner's Eighth symphony and long unavailable, finds its rightful place in this Strauss collection. In addition to the Rosenkavalier and Capriccio moments, we have other orchestral music from Strauss's operas, all conducted by Sinopoli and concluding with one of the most exciting and thrillingly-recorded versions of the Dance of the Seven Veils.

Montserrat Caballe (soprano) [Strauss songs]

Orchestre National de France, Weiner Philharmoniker, Leonard Bernstein

Given Bernstein's sheer sweep of the music of Richard Strauss (the Salome excerpts are spine-tingling) it is a pity he didn't record any more. These precious recordings with Montserrat Caballe are valuable not only for Bernstein's advocacy of Strauss on record but also for the Spanish singer's shimmering interpretations - girl-like in the opera, ravishing in the five orchestral songs. The coupling, the famous extended Prologue from Boito's Mefistofele, complete with choral forces, is one of Bernstein's most sought-after recording and is done with all his characteristic élan. Long unavailable, this recording is restored to the catalogue at budget price.
