Otto Tausk - Conductor
Erin Wall - Soprano
R. Strauss - Four Last Songs
Wagner -The Ring - An Orchestral Adventure
In the Four Last Songs, Strauss takes leave of his long and fruitful life by commemorating those things dearest to him: his love for nature, his wife of fifty-four years and her soprano voice, which he so cherished, and his belief in the transcendence of the soul. It is a deeply personal work, in sharp contrast to the myths and Norse sagas of Wagner’s music dramas in The Ring, here expertly encapsulated in one intrepid orchestral adventure by composer Henk de Vlieger.
