Diana Damrau sings Strauss

London Symphony Orchestra/Gianandrea Noseda

Diana Damrau sings strauss

Soprano Diana Damrau performs Strauss paired with Iain Bell’s setting of words by Christa Palmer, with conductor Gianandrea Noseda.

Iain Bell’s The Hidden Place sets poetry written by Christa Palmer, opera singer and aunt of soprano soloist Diana Damrau, and depicts the intimate moments shared by two lovers throughout the four seasons of the year.

We also hear music by Richard Strauss, journeying from his formative years – Don Juan, the breakaway tone poem which solidified the 24-year-old composer’s reputation and Till Eulenspiegel, which chronicles the misadventures of a German peasant hero – to the final scene of his opera Capriccio, written at the end of his life.

Part of the Barbican's Diana Damrau Sings Strauss series

The performance is expected to finish around 8.55pm, including a 20 minute interval.
