Renée Fleming (Soprano);

Gloriously affirming the Salzburg Festivals long-standing reputation as a supreme musical event, this concert honours one of its founding fathers, Richard Strauss. Renée Fleming, Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra unite for a programme of song, opera and tone poem, genres central to the composers extraordinarily fruitful career. Fleming interprets four of his songs with orchestra, including the deeply moving Befreit, and provides a substantial taste of perhaps her finest operatic role, Arabella. New vistas then open as Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic take the spectacular mountain journey mapped by the composer in his titanic Alpine Symphony.

"Strauss's ingenious orchestral passages are highlighted." (BBC Music Magazine)

"Thielemann, whose reading is satisfyingly spacious, reveals the work's structural mastery in intermingling and transforming its many themes." (Gramophone)

"This is a rare case of visuals enhancing the listening experience...there is still no soprano I would rather hear in the soaring lines of 'Traum durch die Dämmerung' and 'Gesang der Apollopriesterin'." (The Financial Times)
