Many an artist can formulate a recital around the works of a single composer, but few so expertly and effortlessly as Dame Felicity Lott. Together with her longtime collaborator, pianist Graham Johnson, Lott creates an expansive view of Richard Strauss' oeuvre through the lens of one of his richest compositional periods (1885-1901). Among the best-loved of Strauss’ works surface lesser-known gems, rare beauties illumined by Lott’s sensitive singing and Johnson’s deft, assured accompaniment. A disc to be treasured.
