And another fine Melba issue is a collection of songs of Richard Strauss sung by tenor Steve Davislim...This young tenor possesses a remarkably expressive voice…He obviously loves and understands these magnificent Strauss songs, and is aided considerably by the exquisite accompaniment conducted by the remarkable Simone Young , who is as compelling in Strauss as she is in Bruckner. Beautiful audio, with the voice perfectly placed, and complete texts and translations.
