First came some early opera excerpts, then came a fine account of the Alpine Symphony coupled with the suite from Der Rosenkavalier and here we have his most recent foray into the Strauss works with this massive Ein Heldenleben and the 22 minute symphonic fantasy from Die Frau Ohne Schatten. Remember that this whole violin portrayal of the wife can get rather tedious in the wrong conductor's hands, especially if their tempo is too slow. The footboard also comes in two versions, high or low to match the height of the bed frame boards and form a continual surface.
Roberto Lazzeroni gives us a light, feminine, almost twee version. The more luxurious version is wrapped in leather quilting embroidered with refined geometric stitching, while another version has a smooth central part and simple border piping. The footboard also comes in two versions, high or low to match the height of the bed frame boards and form a continual surface. It's 22 minutes of music, most of the famous melodies from the opera are laced together to create this symphonic synthesis. The warm, lush sound coupled with the great outbursts of orchestral power, it's fantastic. All in all I would say that this Heldenleben is a winner, a truly muscular, if perhaps at times over-weighted, somewhat bloated account.

In making orchestal suites of operas, it's tough to put the material together in a cogent way, I think Strauss does fine but you'll really want to hear the opera itself after this. The headboard frame is in solid beech wood e birch plywood, padded with polyurethane foam. The more luxurious version is wrapped in leather quilting embroidered with refined geometric stitching, while another version has a smooth central part and simple border piping. The side panels are in tulipier wood, with light polyurethane foam padding, while the footboard is in poplar multilayer the two corners in moulded polyurethane foam. Four stars for Thielemann, four stars for Rattle, always five stars for Karajan! The later section with the Hero's Works of Peace and his Retirement from the World and Fulfillment are lovely, Thielemann focuses on the lovely melodies and some listeners who like to have things move more quickly might not like it but I thought it was very beautiful. Alongside the tapered feet, covered in leather, there is also a variant in moka- or wenge-stained solid ash. However, listening to this entire opera is a long haul indeed, so it is wonderful that Thielemann chose to record this Die Frau Fantasy to give people angeschaltet exquisite taste of this seductive work. Right away from the opening of Hero's Life, you know you've got a true individual spirit on the podium leading the magnificient body of the Vienna Philharmonic.
