Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) is one of the most ambitious and sumptuously scored of all Richard Strauss’ symphonic works. At times, an orchestra of over one hundred players is busily engaged in pouring forth music of considerable intricacy; at others, a solo violin may be performing pyrotechnical passages worthy of a first-rank concerto or a tenor tuba may crop up with an unexpected solo. A score of such richness and complexity requires not only a fine conductor and orchestra but also a recording technique capable of imparting realism to the performance and of bringing out all the busily working inner voices. Now, for the first time, everything the music has to offer is revealed in this brilliant new Everest recording. Listening to it will be an exciting experience.
