Aldeburgh Strings and Winds - R. Strauss: Metamorphosen - Pizzicato


25 June 2017
Pizzicato
Remy Franck

Exzellente Richard Strauss-Einspielungen gibt es bei Linn mit den ‘Aldeburgh Strings’ und den ‘Aldeburgh Winds’. Das erstgenannte Ensemble spielt mit sehr differenzierendem, fein justiertem und gottseidank pathosfreien Gestus die ‘Metamorphosen’ und die ‘Serenade’, das Schwesterensemble beeindruckt mit einer genauso wohl dosierten und brillant gespielten Aufnahme der ‘Fröhlichen Werkstatt’, einer Symphonie für Blasinstrumente. Interessante und kohärente Kopplung, vorzügliche Darbietung, guter Ton! (Linn CKD538).
