This review is from: Richard Strauss: Four Last Songs (Audio CD)
I heard Soile Isokoski sing in Cosi fan Tutti at Covent Garden last year and she was stunning. When I saw this CD advertised, I thought I would buy it, though other than Der Rosenkavalier and Ariadne auf Naxos, I had not really listened to Strauss. Luckily CDs don't seem to wear out readily as I have played this over and over. Her voice is beautiful and the emotional intensity she gives to Wiegenlied, Beim Schlafengehen and Im Abendrot is breathtaking. Buy it - listen and be moved.
