Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Many an artist can formulate a recital around the works of a single composer, but few so expertly and effortlessly as Dame Felicity Lott. Together with her longtime collaborator, pianist Graham Johnson, Lott creates an expansive view of Richard Strauss' oeuvre through the lens of one of his richest compositional periods (1885-1901). Among the best-loved of Strauss' works surface lesser-known gems, rare beauties illumined by Lott's sensitive singing and Johnson's deft, assured accompaniment. A disc to be treasured.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Dame Felicity Lott sings these 26 songs as well as one is likely to hear them. She has all the requirements - a gorgeous sound, elegant phrasing, and a total command of dynamics. She has the ideal Strauss sound - a pure tone never marred by too much vibrato or breathiness. I enjoyed this immensely. Graham Johnson offers superb playing; he also divided the songs into groups, interestingly described in an essay in the booklet. The booklet also includes texts, which makes listening even more enjoyable.
