“Hers is truly a voice in a million.” – The Telegraph Described as possessing “a magnificent voice of great power and beauty” (Bachtrack), Lise Davidsen’s hotly anticipated debut featuring Strauss’ iconic Four Last Songs is now available.

The album also includes arias from Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos, in which she made her acclaimed Glyndebourne debut, and Wagner’s Tannäuser, in which she makes her Bayreuth Festival debut this summer. Davidsen is the first Scandinavian soprano to sign exclusively to the label since Birgit Nilsson, whose centenary was celebrated in 2018. She is also the first Norwegian singer to join Decca Classics since her compatriot Kirsten Flagstad made her acclaimed late recordings for Decca in the 1950s, and famously recorded Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs at the composer’s request shortly before his death in 1949. The significance of the Philharmonia is also notable; the orchestra performed the premiere of Strauss’s iconic song cycle alongside Flagstad at the Royal Albert Hall in May 1950. “Davidsen’s is a name to remember, and a voice – once heard – you won’t forget.” - Gramophone
