Strauss: Ein Heldenleben, Der Rosenkavalier Suite Label: Linn Records Catalogue number: CKD510 Release date: April 2019

"There’s warmth, men­ace and crys­talline pre­ci­sion in this new record­ing of Richard Strauss’s Ein Helden­leben that beau­ti­fully cap­tures the tone poem’s af­fec­tion and sar­donic mock­ery in equal mea­sure. It’s a re­in­force­ment of the dy­namic part­ner­ship emerg­ing in live per­for­mance be­tween the RSNO and its new mu­sic direc­tor Thomas Søn­dergård." The Scotsman
