Never one to shirk admiration, Richard Strauss composed a major tone poem in his own honor! "Ein Heldenleben" represents the summing-up of his orchestra wizardry, calling for a gigantic orchestra with eight French horns, five trumpets and a triple winds. It requires blazing virtuosity in all sections, and the Minnesota Orchestra under the direction of Eiji Oue rises magnificently to the challenge! Conductor Erich Leinsdorf fashioned a brillant orchestral suite from Strauss' opera "Die Frau Ohne Schatten" (The Women Without A Shadow), which is equally lush and even more romantic in flavor. Oue and the Minnesotans give this little-known but highly appealing music a stunning performance - and its first digital recording!



1. Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40

Possibly the best I've heard of this piece. And I'm a big Karajan fan for this material. The HDCD format might sound a little 'sibilant' on regular players but the recording is otherwise fantastic.
