ArtistsSymphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
“An Alpine Symphony” is probably Strauss’s most famous symphonic poem. Its content is easily understandable, and the work became especially well-known for its gigantic orchestra. The music is far from heavy-handed, however, with many of the passages orchestrated like chamber music. The live recording of “Alpine Symphony” is enhanced on this latest CD from BR-Klassik by the addition of Strauss’s symphonic poem “Death and Transfiguration”, first performed in 1890; the recording here is of concerts performed by the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and its chief conductor Mariss Jansons in Munich in February 2014. We thus have two very recent interpretations of two of this great German composer’s most important tone poems on one CD.
