Album Summary

>Strauss, Richard : Ariadne auf Naxos, Op. 60
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Director Katharina Thoma sets Richard Strauss's comedy in a country house in the South Downs (a surrogate for Glyndebourne), immediately before and during the Second World War. Hofmannsthals' conceit - that a hapless young composer has to accept the simultaneous performance of his new tragic opera with a burlesque from a commedia dell'arte troupe - is turned into a touching wartime drama of nurses, invalids, airmen - and of painful delusions and soul-searching, before final happiness
