  • Richard Strauss
    Eine Alpensinfonie (An Alpine Symphony), op. 64

When a storm erupts during an orchestral work, there is a moment of overwhelming energy, followed by relief. Philippe Jordan conducts two powerful works in which such scenes occur: Richard Strauss’s Eine Alpensymphonie and excerpts from Wagner’s Rheingold. Expressive power is also unleashed with a blizzard and a thunderstorm in Alban Berg’s Altenberg Lieder. The soloist is Anja Kampe, who has enjoyed worldwide success as a Wagner interpreter.
