Notes and Editorial Reviews

This, the second volume of the complete Strauss Lieder, begins, like Volume 1, in the familiar territory of Opus 10, and proceeds chronologically through to the 'Ophelia-Lieder', on the way taking in many songs that will be less well-known. Anne Schwanewilms is one of the greatest Strauss sopranos on the opera stage today, performing many major roles under Simon Rattle, Colin Davis, Andrew Davis, Semyon Bychkov and Mark Elder. This is her debut recording on Hyperion.
