I wrestle with Strauss,overwhelmed often pleasurably but sometimes i lose the plot.One day it will all click into place.....entirely my fault of course.
Kempe is a good guide and brings light (textures, polyphony, counterpoint) into everything he conducts. A real Maestro. On the other hand, the musicians of the Staatskapelle Dresden are superb!
