Strauss, R.: Don Juan; Rosenkavalier Suite; Death and Transfiguration; Dance of the Seven Veils
Released: Nov 2006
A 2008 Grammy Award nominee, this live recording captures a capable if not inspired Lorin Maazel conducting a New York Philharmonic in seeming rebirth after years of languishing. The full bill of Strauss includes a splendid version of the morbid tone poem Death and Transfiguration. In 1949, on his own deathbed, Strauss confirmed that this grandiose sound was the proper exit music.
