Two unforgettable evenings showcase the artistry of Renee Fleming alongside Christian Thielemanns mastery of the Austro-German Romantic idiom, as the Salzburg Festival honours one of its founding fathers, Richard Strauss, and the Staatskapelle Dresden draws on the deep well of its living Bruckner tradition.

The mixed vocal and symphonic programmes feature five lieder by the prolific Austrian songsmith Hugo Wolf in addition to four of Strausss finest and an opera scene featuring Fleming in one of her career-defining roles, Arabella. At Dresdens Semperoper, the Staatskapelles then newly appointed music director leads them in Bruckners lyric Seventh in which the composer mourns the death of Wagner, whereas in Salzburg, Thielemann helms the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for the spectacular mountain journey of Strausss titanic Alpine Symphony.

Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound. ``Thielemann, whose reading is satisfyingly spacious, reveals the work`s structural mastery in intermingling and transforming its many themes. The excellent video director Michael Beyer expertly lays out the orchestra in front of us, following the music sensibly so that we can relish Strauss`s detailed scoring...[Fleming] sings gloriously and the result is ravishing `` (Gramophone)
