Sarah Fox: soprano
Susie Allan: piano
Michael Pennington: narrator
This narrated recital, devised and written by Henrietta Bredin, explores the relationship between Richard Strauss and his wife Pauline. Strauss wrote many of his greatest songs with her voice in mind and the fascinating and witty narrative is interspersed with a number of these works.
The strength of the piece as a whole lay in the way the narrative provided background to the songs bringing real emotional and dramatic links between music and the story of the Strauss's marriage ... the best sort of entertainment, in which we were both diverted and informed, with all the performers helping to reveal the remarkable characters behind Richard Strauss's songs.
