Notes & Reviews:
The lyric gift that makes Richard Strauss's operatic writing so memorable still bathes these lesser-known works in a Romantic glow, whether impassioned like the early Violin Sonata, celebratory like Taillefer, the choral ballad on the battle of Hastings, or elegiac like the monumental and haunting Deutsche Motette. Four instrumental arrangements from the operas themselves round out a stimulating companion to the 150th celebration of the composer's birth.
