"Gloriously affirming the Salzburg Festival's 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 composer's 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.
Works: R. Strauss: Befreit, Op. 39 No. 4; Winterliebe, Op. 48 No. 5; Traum durch die Dämmerung, Op. 29 No. 1; Gesang der Apollopriesterin, Op. 33 No. 2; Arabella - Scene; Eine Alpensinfonie
<h3 class=""productDescriptionSource"">Press Reviews
"This is a rare case of visuals enhancing the listening experience, and the Vienna Philharmonic's Strauss tradition is there for all to see. Thielemann doesn t push or pull the music, but he is not a pretty sight: his left hand remains inexpressive...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)
"You can immediately hear the classiness of the orchestral support...Thielemann's journey up the mountain is more a question of inner feeling than outward tone-painting...But the summit sequence and the epilogue rival Herbert von Karajan's Berlin Philharmonic for tonal opulence...the cameras always know what to pinpoint in order to highlight visually Strauss's most ingenious orchestral passages " (BBC Music Magazine ★★★★★)
"Thielemann, whose reading is satisfyingly spacious, reveals the work's structural mastery in intermingling and transforming its many themes. The excellent video director Michael Beyer expertly lays out the orchestra in front of us, following the music sensibly so that we can relish Strauss's detailed scoring...[Fleming] sings gloriously and the result is ravishing " (Gramophone)
"... it is more fun to actually see the players (kudos to video director Michael Beyer) than merely to listen...And no one will accuse the reading [of Ein Alpensinfonie] of not being exciting and the playing superb...In all, this is clearly a treat for Straussians and Fleming fans; she has been both better and worse, but overall, she's lovely here " (International Record Review)

D’abord, une évidence : les Wiener Philarmoniker et leur chef Thielemann sont « chez eux » à Salzbourg et dans Strauss. Mais Renée Flemming aussi : superbe dans sa belle robe moirée, elle file les lieder et l’air d’Arabella avec naturel, élégance, et une voix glamour à souhait : je suis sûr que Richard Strauss aurait appécié cette interprète !
Et que dire de la randonnée alpestre, sinon que l’on s’y croirait : du départ au petit matin, à la montée en sous-bois, puis aux passages près de la cascade, dans les alpages près des vaches, puis dans les pierriers, l’arrivée enfin au sommet et cette vue à 360° qui enivre, puis la redescente, avec l’inévitable orage et le retour au village paisible au coucher du soleil. Cela sent le vécu !
Il est des œuvres où l’on se demande pourquoi le compositeur a voulu convoquer de telles masses orchestrales. Mais pour ce long poème symphonique, où la plupart des pupitres sont « surmultipliés », cela passe et ici tous les instrumentistes seraient à mentionner. Ils sont justement salués par le chef à la fin, ce chef qui est un modèle de rigueur et d’économie du geste.Lire la suite ›

These thoughts were the result of combing through YouTube one evening when I came across a Salzburg concert in the large festival hall given by Renee Fleming and Christian Thielemann. The program consisted of some songs by Strauss, an excerpt from Arabella and the Alpine Symphony. I was thrilled to find that it was available on a CVD. Ome might add uncharitably, not the most balanced of programs even one devoted to Richard Strauss. With Fleming's photograph on the cover one could logically assume that her portion of the program would be longer than it was. Given the level of Fleming's artistry that evening we should have demanded more. I have kept my distance from this artist on many occasions. Her addiction to jazz and pop would be acceptable if it remined a personal quirk and one rare brought out--and never in public. She has been guilty of self indulgent performances that were not worthy of her talent. But this is neither the time nor the place to cite chaper and verse.
That evening in Salzburg was pure vocal magic. It is ungallant to say it but the lady had reached the half century mark. She doesn't look it and more important she doesn't sound sound as if she had over twenty years of singing under her belt. Strauss loved the soprano voice and Fleming was made to sing this music. But even more important to me she reflected that she had spent some time thinking about this music. It meant something to her and accordingly it meant something to me. Of all the songs she sang only Befreit was known to me. It stands as one of Strauss' greatest songs and her performance was heartbreaking; It's a great song in the original piano accompaniment but his orchestration makes it transcendent. Interestingly enough on this same eventing when I discovered the Salzburg performance I came across a clip of Ariadne auf Naxos from Baden Baden. Thielemann was the conductor and Fleming the Ariadne. I understand that she sang only three performances and at least one was taped. It was to be a trial run; would the role be a good fit? On the basis of the great aria Es gibt ein Reich my answer would be an unqualified yes. And here in Baden she set out to create a character--one of the more unusual in the repertoire, but a character none the less. I truly hope that a DVD will shortly be forthcoming!
I will refrain from commenting on the remainder of the concert. The Alpine Symphony is not one of my favorite but it was unquestionably well played by one of the three greatest orchestras iin Europe. The price was reasonble so that even though I probably won't play the tone poem as often as the songs it was a worthwhile iinveestment.
Highly recommended for all the reason cited above!
