About

Gundula Janowitz’s transcendental performance of Strauss’s Four Last Songs, re-released here for her 80th birthday.

“Janowitz’s performance has been described, rightly, as transcendental. It aches with love for a life that is quietly fading. I know of no other piece of music, nor any performance, which moves me quite like this.” – David Bowie

Recorded November 1972–January 1973 (Tod und Verklärung), February 1973 (Songs), Jesus-Christus-Kirche, Berlin
