Recorded live at the Munich Philharmonic Hall, world–renowned  soprano, Diana Damrau sings 22 of Strauss’s lieder with melodious allure and sparkle.

On this album, Poesie: R. Strauss Lieder, Damrau succeeds admirably, showcasing how Strauss should be sung in the authentic manner – bright and expressive with a light lyrical voice. She makes a good deal out of the poetry, as well.

Under the expert guidance of Christian Thielemann, who has made a name for himself conducting Strauss operas around the world, the famed Munich Philharmonic Orchestra delivers a brilliant performance.

"Strauss loved female voices," says Damrau, "and he explores
some extreme possibilities in these many–layered songs, each with its different point of view. Sensitivity to the words is vital to telling the story of each song, to capturing the rapid changes of mood and all the colors."

Diana Damrau is a perfect joy to experience live or on this superb recording.
