CD: Chailly conducts Strauss


Richard Strauss
Thus Spake Zarathustra, Op. 30
Death and Transfiguration, Op. 24
Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks, Op. 28
Dance of the Seven Veils from the opera Salome," Op. 54

(Recorded: Lucerne, August 2017)

On their second CD together, Riccardo Chailly and the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA perform three of Richard Strauss’s best-known tone poems: over 85 minutes of pure orchestral magic! Right at the start of Thus Spake Zarathustra, Strauss depicts a radiant sunrise. Till Eulenspiegel is a dazzling homage to the legendary mischief-maker and rogue who upends the well-ordered world of Philistines. And Death and Transfiguration offers a portrait of a type of artist “who has striven for the highest ideals” and whose soul seeks glorious perfection beyond, “in everlasting space.” A breathtaking pleasure to listen to over and over,  recorded live at the 2017 Summer Festival!
