AUDIO FLASHBACK: R. Strauss’ Four Songs, Op. 27

Our second Audio Flashback this Tuesday is the Op. 27 of Richard Strauss, Four Songs. Strauss originally wrote these songs for his wife, the soprano Pauline de Ahna, and gave them to her as a gift on their wedding day. We performed the work with soprano Paulina Swierczek and conductor Leon Botstein at the Fisher Center at Bard in September 2019.
