About

Gloriously affirming the Salzburg Festival’s long-standing reputation as a supreme musical event, this concert honours one of its founding fathers, Richard Strauss. Renée Fleming, Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra unite for a programme of song, opera and tone poem, genres central to the composer’s extraordinarily fruitful career.

Fleming interprets four of his songs with orchestra, including the deeply moving Befreit, and provides a substantial taste of perhaps her finest operatic role, Arabella. New vistas then open as Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic take the spectacular mountain journey mapped by the composer in his titanic Alpine Symphony.

"Fleming’s performances were infused with an intoxicating power of shape and expression…Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic supported the singer as if carried with their hands." - Der Standard

"One of those musical events that prove that excellence truly is possible." - El País

Recorded live at the Salzburg Festival, August 2011
