What better way to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Richard Strauss than with one of the world's most renowned sopranos, Anna Netrebko performing Strauss' Four Last Songs. In an album dedicated to Richard Strauss, Netrebko is accompanied by conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim and one of Germany's oldest and most prestigious orchestras, the Staatskapelle Berlin. The recording will be available December 9, 2014 on Deutsche Grammophon. Recorded live in Berlin earlier this year, this marks Anna Netrebko's first recording of these iconic Strauss songs. Known for her poise, her voice's unmistakable color, and her coloratura technique, Strauss' Four Last Songs are a perfect match for Netrebko's expressive style.  The album also features Barenboim and the Staatskapelle performing Ein Heldenleben, one of the most vivid and popular tone poems by Strauss, who himself conducted the Staatskapelle over 1,200 times as the General Music Director over a century ago.
