Jonas Kaufmann sings Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the final concert of his Barbican Residency.
Strauss’s Four Last Songs are the ultimate romantic orchestral songs – and the final, gorgeous sunset of German Romanticism. The last concert of Jonas Kaufmann’s Barbican Residency finds him breaking new ground in this most rapturous of musical farewells.
True, they’re more usually sung by a soprano, but the prospect of hearing Kaufmann’s transcendent tone and unparalleled sensitivity in Strauss’s final masterpiece is mouth-watering. There’ll be other Strauss songs too: The Guardian described Kaufmann’s Strauss disc as ‘sexy, passionate singing, delivered with thrilling ease’. Meanwhile regular collaborator Jochen Rieder conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in sumptuous late romantic rarities by Strauss, Elgar and Korngold.
