 On this release of legendary Strauss-singer Soile Isokoski the rarely recorded Three Hymns are coupled with opera arias from Ariadne auf Naxos, Der Rosenkavalier and Capriccio. All these arias are part of Soile Isokoski’s standard repertoire, she has performed them regularly at opera houses like Vienna State Opera, Covent Garden, Milan’s La Scala, the Semperoper in Dresden, in Berlin, Paris and at prestigious festivals like Salzburg, Edinburgh, Orange and Savonlinna.

A multiple award-winner, Iskokoski’s recording of Strauss’s Four Last Songs won a Gramophone Award in 2002, in March this year it was the Winner in the blind test arranged by French magazine Classica.
 
Three Hymns is a major work, which so far has been surprisingly rarely recorded, no doubt partly because of the great vocal demand it poses to the soloist. Nonetheless they are atmospheric concert pieces with Strauss’ orchestration in full bloom. They already anticipate the Four Last Songs and are waiting to be rediscovered.

                   Critics Choice 

"...This radiant raversal by Isokoski and Kamu may win fresh attention from these hyms to various aspects of love."

David Shengold - Opera News magazine - February 2013


             **** - Good

 Remy Franck - Pizzicato magazine - January 2013
 

 "...With composer, artists and production team at their consummate best, this is already established as a regular visitor to the CD tray and offers new insights every time."

Ian Julier - International Record Review - January 2012

*****
The BBC's Andrew MacGregor recommended this for the performance of the hymns and indeed they are exceptional in their difficulty and the execution by Isoile Isokoski could hardly hardly be better, indeed superb singing. The rest of the disc consists if arias not least of which are two Ariadne pieces which demonstrate just how Ariadne should e sung but often is not. Indeed if like me you know della Casa & Schwarzkopf in this role
