HD-Vinyls 24/192 (EMI) Richard Strauss – Four Last Songs (Schwarzkopf)

Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this splendid gem
Schwarzkopf’s version of the Four Last Songs represents the closest the human voice comes to perfection, in an astounding piece of music that touches the deepest reaches of the soul. Her rendition of the single phrase “so tief im Abendrot” in the fourth song is incomparably sublime, even ecstatic. I don’t believe any other soprano will ever come close to her in interpreting this work. To me, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf with George Szell conducting, sings in the definitive heavenly recording of Richard Strauss’ Four Last Songs and other lieder from 1966 and 1969 recordings.
