Pauline being Richard Strauss’ beloved wife to whom he dedicated many Lieder from his opus 27 - the 1894 cycle offered to his wife as a wedding gift - until the last Vier letzte Lieder in 1948. Under the supple baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Philharmonic Orchestra embraces the brassy voice of the Norwegian soprano with finesse and elegance. The answer lies in Lise Davidsen’s voice, which upsurges as if it were a promise of immortality, the music of the last Strauss piece returning one last time to its past, to a Europe in ruins. Discovered in 1984, after the death of the singer and dedicatee Maria Jeritza, Malven ( The Mallows") is Richard Strauss’ true last song. Lighter in tone than the Vier letzte Lieder to which it might have belonged, it is presented here in an orchestration by Wolfgang Rihm.
Surtitles Dutch and English. With its splendid choral movements, Wagner’s ‘romantische Oper’ Tannhäuser is a true ‘singers’ opera’. German conductor Marc Albrecht and German director Christof Loy have signed on both for this fresh staging. Sacred and profane love. Tannhäuser is the story of a knight-poet who is unable to choose between sacred love (Elisabeth) and profane love (Venus). To oblige the Paris Jockey Club, Wagner opened the first act with a racy bacchanal for dancers. Venus versus Elisabeth. Weary of Venus, Tannhäuser returns home to Saxony
