Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hyperion's Strauss Lieder series continues to demonstrate that the composer's achievements in this genre are among the most fascinating and accomplished of his works. This latest volume includes the delicious Schlechtes Wetter from Op 69 and the lovely - and unknown - Waldesfahrt from the same group. The delicately beautiful Malven, with which the recital ends, is known as Strauss's "Fifth Last Song." The central work recorded here, Krämerspiegel, owes its genesis to Strauss's long-lasting and bitter dispute with the German music publishing industry. Roger Vignoles is the curator and pianist of this series, and also writes the informative booklet notes. Making her Hyperion debut is soprano Elizabeth Watts.
