Notes and Editorial Reviews

Another impressive version of the Four Last Songs that I found especially captivating is from the creamy-textured and expressive Cheryl Studer accompanied by the Dresden Staatskapelle under Giuseppe Sinopoli. Studer made the recording in Dresden in 1993 for Deutsche Grammophon 439 865-2. The valuable coupling is Studer’s splendid performance of the Wagner Wesendonck Lieder and the Vorspiel and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde.
