Strauss Four Last Songs at 10:00

Posted at 9:18 AM on July 20, 2011 by Alison Young


If you listen to only one thing today, listen at 10:00. It's some of the most sublime music ever written. Four songs for soprano and orchestra. Lush, tender, soaring and I guarantee you'll have constant goosebumps.

Strauss "Four Last Songs" in probably the greatest recording ever made with Elisabeth Scwarzkopf.
