Richard Strauss

Diana Damrau has a beautiful voice and has the talent to perform very difficult Strauss Orchestral lieders on her new album Poesie, but this recording is lacking organization. 

Damrau’s voice soars over the wonderful phrases that describe pastoral scenes or love filled verses.  The German opera singer has been tried and tested as she has performed many of Strauss’s lead-operatic roles.  Diana Damrau shows off her skill with this album that she obviously enjoyed singing.
