Christine Brewer's many admirers have been waiting for ages for her to commit her famous interpretation of Strauss's Four Last Songs to disc. Now that we finally have it, it turns out to be problematic on a number of counts. The sound is strange, with Brewer very closely recorded, and despite the dignified beauty of her singing you get little sense of her voice's natural balance against a large orchestra.
Four Last Songs (Richard Strauss, world premiere), with excerpts from Tristan und Isolde and Götterdämmerung, (Philharmonia Orchestra, cond. Wilhelm Furtwängler), London 22 May 1950. Wilhelm Furtwangler Conducts Strauss - Four Last Songs and Wagner Excerpts (Testament), liner notes. Some controversy surrounds the recording of Vier Letzte Lieder from this occasion, which survives only in a recording of variable quality set down at the receiving end of a radio broadcast. Some sources (including the most recent release, by the Testament label) allege the recording to be of the live performance itself; others allege rather that it is of the dress rehearsal earlier in the day, and state that no surviving recording of the Strauss portion of the concert survives.
Philharmonia Orchestra, Wilhelm Furtwängler. The world premiere of Four Last Songs in its best transfer ever, plus some previously unissued Wagner from the same concert. BBC Music Magazine, September 2007, Mor. elease Date: 12th Mar 2007. Here's a live recording of the concert in 1950 when Flagstad gave the premiere of Strauss's Four Last Songs, followed by some truly unforgettable Wagner; yet it's the latter that makes the CD so exciting. Flagstad and Furtwängler had several collaborations in these Wagnerian excerpts, but caught live in very reasonable sound they produce performances that lift one out of one's seat. Furtwängler is in incandescent form in the Tristan excerpts, and even more so in the Dawn and Rhine Journey from Act 1 of Götterdämmerung.
