Valery Gergiev has paid the German repertoire particular attention throughout his career, which ignited a lasting fascination for Richard Strauss. He has made it his specialty. Maestro Gergiev has excelled with this repertoire over recent years and continues to do so in concert halls and opera houses all over the world.
The two pieces on this recording Ein Heldenleben and Don Juan embody the perfect blend of what was of importance in the musical tradition of the 19th century: symphonic composition and programme music. Richard Strauss was an expert and a pioneer in the exploration of bringing the two together in his compositions. The two tone poems on this recording pose a challenge the Munich Philharmonic has brilliantly mastered with Maestro Gergiev.
