Superb

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wonderful playing of wonderful pieces.

The Wesendonck Lieder have the unusual orchestration of Henze which is a lot more modern sounding (sparser with more subtle use of woodwind) than the better-known Mottl orchestraition. This alone makes it interesting.

Nes has a wonderful voice and sings beautifully here.

The Siegfried Idyll is played well too.

The R Strauss pieces are lovely and are captured really well here. The Dance scene waltz has lots of lilt and charm. The Duet-Concertino is really cute (clarinet = princess, bassoon = bear).

So overall, a lovely disc.
