Richard Strauss: Arabella / Te Kanawa, Grundheber and Fontana

Album Summary

>Strauss, Richard : Arabella, Op. 79
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Jeffrey Tate's prime virtue is his ability to convey a score's harmonic and textural chiaroscuro and it is very evident here, though at some cost in sheer Straussian sensuousness...[Te Kanawa] has considerable insight into Arabella's character...It is a shining performance and her many admirers will rejoice that this permanent record of a role she adorns is available at last." -Gramophone

BBC Music Magazine
Stylish performance under Jeffrey Tate, with plenty of momentum to join up the highlights. Te Kanawa is in her element, finely partnered by Franz Grundheber.
