Podcast: Richard Strauss’ Orchestral Suites

Richard Strauss wrote some of the finest operas of the 20th century. Pieces like Elektra, Salome and Der Rosenkavalier helped push the limits of the operatic artform, and also established Strauss as one of the truly great composers for the media. In a few cases, he created orchestral suites from these stage works, and it’s this music that is featured in this podcast, including his suites for Der Rosenkavalier, Die Frau Ohne Shatten and Josephs-Legende. JoAnn Falletta conducts the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra in in this new Naxos CD.

    Another lovely example of Strauss' wonderful works – I still probably favor the Alpine Symphony, but thanks to your podcast I have added Strauss to my fave composers list. :)

    PS. And of course, this latest podcast reminded me I had not yet obtained the CD for the Alpine Symphony… Curse you, Raymond Bisha!!! LOL JK, of course! :D Really love the podcasts – thanks for all…

    Only just discovered the Naxos podcasts on the itune site. What a wonderful way to try before you buy. In the last two weeks have bought five Naxos CD's in a local store and now I am waiting for the delvery of the Richard Strauss Orchestral Suites from the Buffalo Philharmonic (I wonder what Buffalo is like?).
    Thank you Mr Bisha for your wonderful and humerous observations and comments.
