Strauss Concert | Monte Carlo | May 3th

[In the closing scene of Strauss’s Capriccio], the German soprano Anne Schwanewilms displays a magnificent voice, with very refined even gleaming inflections. The final sections attained the very heights of luminosity. 

In the second half of the concert, her execution of “Morgen!”, opus 27, “Die Nacht”, opus 10 and “Zueignung”, opus 10 offer even more opportunities to one of the leading interpreters of the Richard Strauss repertoire. She handles the high pitched notes like fragile pieces of lace, bringing an extreme vocal delicacy to the point and brilliance of the theme.
