Anna Leese

Richard Strauss is an extraordinary candidate for inclusion in this series.

Richard Strauss (1864–1949)
(arr. Maunder): Festmusik Der Stadt Wien for Brass and Timpani, Werke O.op. 133
Composed 1943

Metamorphosen Study for 23 Solo Strings, O.op. 142
Composed 1944–1945

Capriccio Op. 85 Prelude and Final Scene
Composed 1941

Anna Leese: Soprano

Marc Taddei: Conductor

His career began as a child prodigy and continued with unabated inspiration until his death at the age of 85. It’s a revelatory example of the power of human creation. We hear his last major orchestral work in the Metamorphosen, his final opera in Capriccio and his final fanfare in his exhilarating Festmusik.

For us, Capriccio is about the enchantment that great music provides. Born during the most unimaginable of human catastrophes, perhaps this simple idea is enough.

This concert is one of huge depth and pleasure and we can’t wait to hear the magnificent Anna Leese sing the glorious closing scene to his final opera.
