Louise Page sings Richard Strauss
The City of Melbourne Song Recital Award was created by the late Mietta O'Donnell and Tony Knox out of a concern for the diminishing numbers of practitioners and audiences for the Art Song.
This disc features the beautiful soprano voice of Louise Page accompanied by pianist Phillipa Candy, performing a collection of lyrical, expressive and romantic songs by Richard Strauss.
Du meines Herzens Krönelein
Lieder Op. 48
Drei Ophelia Lieder Op. 67
Wie erkenn ich mein Treulieb
Sie trugen ihn auf der Bahre bloss
Fünf Kleine Lieder Op. 69
Press Quotes“For lovers of Strauss Lieder this is a CD that should not be missed.”
— The Lieder Society of Victoria“The singing throughout is beautifully lyrical, firmly shaped with fine tonal control over the wide vocal range the songs demand, and with a notable expressive coloration of their differing moods and dynamics ... this is a disc to enchant and delight any lover of German lied.”
— The Canberra Times
