what’s playing now

      Lisa Flynn's New Releases

      August 7, 2017

      Strauss: An Sie, Op 43 No 1 (3:36)
      Nicky Spence, tenor; Roger Vignoles, piano

      Strauss: Four Last Songs: September (4:40)
      Rebecca Evans, soprano; Roger Vignoles, piano

      Roger Vignoles notes that Strauss’s songs cannot be played “without a vivid sense of the orchestral colors and textures that they imply.” So how better to conclude Hyperion’s series of the complete songs than with the piano-accompanied versions of the Four Last Songs? These wondrous valedictions are the summation of Strauss’s love affair with the voice, written at the end of a long creative life.
