Richard Strauss: The Complete Songs, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
The third release in Hyperion's survey of the complete songs of Richard Strauss follows two volumes sung by sopranos with a volume sung by a tenor. Naturally, this gives a different cast to the melodies, a bolder, more brazen, more aggressive cast.

The third release in Hyperion's survey of the complete songs of Richard Strauss follows two volumes sung by sopranos with a volume sung by a tenor. Naturally, this gives a different cast to the melodies, a bolder, more brazen, more aggressive cast. For listeners who associate the sweet silvery sound of sopranos with Strauss, this may be a less appealing choice. But for listeners with broader tastes, the young English tenor Andrew Kennedy may make a persuasive case for using a tenor. Kennedy has a strong but tightly controlled voice with a gleaming top and a well-focused vibrato, and he places it entirely at the service of the music. For the tiny "Die Zeitlose" to the enormous "Anbetung," Kennedy modulates his instrument to fit the shape and flow of the melodies, and though his attention to detail may seem obsessive to some, the overall effect is wholly convincing. Better yet, in the "Sechs Lieder, Op. 17," and the "Fünf Lieder, Op. 32," Kennedy shows he can create dramatically cogent sets of songs. As before in this series, Roger Vignoles provides a skillful and sympathetic accompaniment that brings out the best in both the singer and the songs, and Hyperion's sound is a bit close but very vivid.
