Here to help you enjoy more Richard Strauss on the 150th anniversary of his birth.
We are offering 5 CDs of Strauss’ Symphonic works for £30*. When first released these recordings of some of Strauss’s most important orchestral works were enthusiastically reviewed for the quality of sound and interpretation.
VOLUME 1 – (2-CD set) including An Alpine Symphony, Death and Transfiguration, A Hero’s Life, Don Juan. Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Neeme Jarvi
”The production is superb … first-rate tough hard-hitting Death and Transfiguration … succulent, and surprisingly tender Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life).” International Record Review. Order CHAN10199 (part of the 5 for £30* offer)
VOLUME 2 – (2-CD set) including Symphonia domestica, Till Eulenspiegel and his merry pranks, Macbeth, Don Quixote, Thus Spake Zarathustra. Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Neeme Jarvi
“The orchestra plays magnificently, whether in powerful outbursts or lyrical moments of aching beauty like the strings, violin and viola solo in the Grablied… Järvi’s Strauss series is an important set of recordings that will hold an honoured place alongside Chandos’ Prokofiev and Bax cycles.” Fanfare . Order CHAN10206 (part of the 5 for £30* offer)
VOLUME 3 – (1 CD) including Aus Italien, Metamorphosen. Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Neeme Jarvi “This is as good a recording of Aus Italien as any. The sound is sumptuous…..Metamorphosen sounds beautiful here.” American Record Guide. Order CHAN10218 (part of the 5 for £30* offer)
