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. Works: R. Strauss: Befreit, Op. 39 No. 4; Winterliebe, Op. 48 No. 5; Traum durch die Dämmerung, Op. 29 No. 1; Gesang der Apollopriesterin, Op. 33 No. 2; Arabella - Scene; Eine Alpensinfonie
These thoughts were the result of combing through YouTube one evening when I came across a Salzburg concert in the large festival hall given by Renee Fleming and Christian Thielemann. The program consisted of some songs by Strauss, an excerpt from Arabella and the Alpine Symphony. I was thrilled to find that it was available on a CVD. Ome might add uncharitably, not the most balanced of programs even one devoted to Richard Strauss. With Fleming's photograph on the cover one could logically assume that her portion of the program would be longer than it was. Given the level of Fleming's artistry that evening we should have demanded more. I have kept my distance from this artist on many occasions. Her addiction to jazz and pop would be acceptable if it remined a personal quirk and one rare brought out--and never in public. She has been guilty of self indulgent performances that were not worthy of her talent. But this is neither the time nor the place to cite chaper and verse.
That evening in Salzburg was pure vocal magic. It is ungallant to say it but the lady had reached the half century mark. She doesn't look it and more important she doesn't sound sound as if she had over twenty years of singing under her belt. Strauss loved the soprano voice and Fleming was made to sing this music. But even more important to me she reflected that she had spent some time thinking about this music. It meant something to her and accordingly it meant something to me. Of all the songs she sang only Befreit was known to me. It stands as one of Strauss' greatest songs and her performance was heartbreaking; It's a great song in the original piano accompaniment but his orchestration makes it transcendent. Interestingly enough on this same eventing when I discovered the Salzburg performance I came across a clip of Ariadne auf Naxos from Baden Baden. Thielemann was the conductor and Fleming the Ariadne. I understand that she sang only three performances and at least one was taped. It was to be a trial run; would the role be a good fit? On the basis of the great aria Es gibt ein Reich my answer would be an unqualified yes. And here in Baden she set out to create a character--one of the more unusual in the repertoire, but a character none the less. I truly hope that a DVD will shortly be forthcoming!
I will refrain from commenting on the remainder of the concert. The Alpine Symphony is not one of my favorite but it was unquestionably well played by one of the three greatest orchestras iin Europe. The price was reasonble so that even though I probably won't play the tone poem as often as the songs it was a worthwhile iinveestment.
Highly recommended for all the reason cited above!
