Renee Fleming Live in Concert
Gloriously affirming the Salzburg Festival's long-standing reputation as a supreme musical event, this concert honors one of it's founding fathers, Richard Strauss. Rene Fleming, Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra unite for a program of song, opera and tone poem, genres central to the composer's extraordinarily fruitful career. Fleming interprets four of his songs with orchestra, including the deeply moving Befreit, and provides a substantial taste of perhaps her finest operatic role, Arabella. New vistas then open as Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic take the spectacular mountain journey mapped by the composer in his titanic Alpine Symphony.
