Description: To prove that Strauss wrote for other than the soprano voice, here is a collection for low male voices whose crowning achievement must be the op. 87 set of quasi-operatic and inward settings of poems of regret, loss and other serious themes obviously inspired by the composer's advancing years (the last one dates from 1935). German-English texts. Christopher Maltman (baritone), Alastair Miles (bass), Roger Vignoles (piano).
