About

The Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Vasily Petrenko offer the third and final release in the series of recordings of Richard Strauss’s orchestral music. On this CD the listener is presented with the tone poems Eine Alpensinfonie, op.64, and Tod und Verklärung, op.24.

The Oslo Philharmonic, under the baton of chief conductor Petrenko, reaped glowing reviews in Norway and abroad for their first two recording in this Strauss series: LWC1166, (Also sprach Zarathustra and Ein Heldenleben) and LWC1184 (Don Quixote, Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche).

Both releases were selected as “Editor’s Choice” by Gramophone magazine and were universally critically acclaimed.

“There’s no lack of excitement or, where needed, bombast, and the Osloers’ sound at full throttle is thrilling, their playing superb.” – Gramophone, August 2019

“As Petrenko’s tenure in Oslo begins to wind down, he revels in the standards of orchestral virtuosity he has attained with this excellent band in two Strauss tone poems that challenge all instrumental departments... the Osloers shine brilliantly.”
– Sunday Times, April 2019
