Strauss: Four Last Songs, Brentano Lieder

Strauss: Four Last Songs, Brentano Lieder

by Ricarda Merbeth
     
 
Merbeth is supremely well prepared and on top of this repertoire, and the Weimar orchestra, cliché to say but true, have the sound of Strauss's music still in their blood. Halász, a regular collaborator of the soprano's (and who has led several previous Naxos triumphs), beds down in the tempi of "Im Abendrot" a little too much but his singer can more than handle that.

Overview

Merbeth is supremely well prepared and on top of this repertoire, and the Weimar orchestra, cliché to say but true, have the sound of Strauss's music still in their blood. Halász, a regular collaborator of the soprano's (and who has led several previous Naxos triumphs), beds down in the tempi of "Im Abendrot" a little too much but his singer can more than handle that. Natural, unplush sound, aptly matching the music-making.
