Product description

Product Description

This CD features Finnish star soprano Soile Isokoski and her longstanding duo partner Marita Viitasalo, with a selection of Lieder by Richard Strauss. Included are such popular songs as Zueignung, Cäcilie, Morgen!, and Allerseelen. Along with the cycle of 3 Ophelia-Lieder and Strausss final complete composition, Malven, this collection spans 65 years of Strauss writing. The music of Richard Strauss has been a cornerstone of the singing career of Soile Isokoski: His music just sits so well in my voice, in terms of both its range and its lyrical quality. Soile Isokoskis earlier CD release of Strauss Orchestral Songs and Vier letzte Lieder (ODE982-2) became a major commercial success and earned her a Gramophone Award. Soile Isokoski is hailed as one of the finest singers in the world (Isokoski's lyric soprano is like liquid gold. David L. Kirk, Fanfare Magazine, March/April 2009) whose recordings have been praised as top-choice and garnered the highest distinctions at the BBC Music Magazine Awards, Gramophone Awards and MIDEM Classical Awards.

Review

There may be no great surprises here in respect of repertoire-all familiar favourites here-but this recital by Finnish soprano Soile Isokoski offers a rare treat in terms of vocalism.Seldom today does one hear a singer offering such pure tone and stylistic poise,articulating the text with unaffected clarity and blooming in the silvery top register that Strauss exploits so lovingly.Highlights include the three Ophelia songs and a rapt Befreit. **** --Telegraph,12/02/12

There is always illumination to be had from hearing a great artist at work, and it will come as no surprise to Lieder lovers that there are fine things here… a very distinguished recital. --Piers Burton-Page, International Record Review

Isokoski's technique has stood the test of time: she pulls off the vivacious delicacy of Wie sollten wir geheim sue halten and the sotto voce rapture of Ständchen alongside effulgent rhapsodies such as Cäcilie. 4*/5* --David Nice - BBC Music Magazine

The intense, silvered beauty of her tone... and the unmannered clarity of her diction are unique in this music today. She instinctively conveys the sensuality of Strauss's flower songs (the minionettes of Allerseelen, Die Georgine, Das Rosenband) and the rapture of his love songs, mostly to his future wife, Pauline: two of his wedding gift set, Op 27, are included here. The strange Ophelia set, rarely programmed, can never have been more sumptuously sung. --Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times
