Two unforgettable evenings showcase the artistry of Renée Fleming alongside Christian Thielemann’s mastery of the Austro-German Romantic idiom. The Salzburg Festival honours one of its founding fathers, Richard Strauss, and the Staatskapelle Dresden draws on the deep well of its living Bruckner tradition. The mixed vocal and symphonic programmes feature five lieder by the prolific songsmith Hugo Wolf in addition to four of Strauss’s finest, and an opera scene featuring Fleming in one of her career-defining roles, Arabella.
”…A Magician on the Podium… Thielemann did what he can arguably do like no one else… weaving sonic marvels out of music of the Romantic period” (Die Welt)
”Fleming sings gloriously and the result is ravishing” (Gramophone)
