The DSO and Robin Ticciati have released five CDs on Linn Records since autumn 2017, highly acclaimed recordings with French repertoire by Debussy, Duparc, Duruflé and Fauré and with Bruckner's Sixth Symphony. Ondine has also released a recording of the Beethoven and Sibelius violin concertos with Christian Tetzlaff, which was recently named one of the best Beethoven recordings of all time by the British music magazine 'Gramophone'.
The latest CD, which will again be released on September 4 by Linn Records, is now dedicated to Richard Strauss, his tone poems and songs. The program includes 'Don Juan' and 'Death and Transfiguration', two intoxicating masterpieces with which Strauss established his compositional fame even before his first opera. This is also due to his song writing. In 1918 he composed the Six Songs op. 68, settings of poems by Clemens Brentano for voice and piano, which he later orchestrated. A congenial interpreter is the British soprano Louise Alder, who gave her celebrated DSO debut in 2018 in Handel's 'Messiah' under the baton of Robin Ticciati.
With the new release on September 4, 2020, the DSO continues its collaboration with Linn Records, initiated in 2017. With its carefully curated portfolio, the multi-award-winning Scottish label addresses an audiophile target group and offers not only sound carriers but also high-resolution studio master files for download. Further joint productions are already in preparation.
