Diana Damrau has been called 'the leading coloratura soprano in the world' but her gift for characterisation and lustrous, gloriously rich voice makes her a superb interpreter of the music of Richard Strauss.
Her performance of the Four Last Songs would light up any concert, but tonight her regular collaborator Sir Antonio Pappano surrounds them with sunshine: Elgar’s lush musical postcard from Italy, and Brahms’ most lyrical symphony.
Great opera conductors always bring an extra dimension to symphonic music, so expect Pappano to bring out all the latent drama of these three unashamedly romantic masterpieces.
