About the Event
Enjoy soprano Diana Damrau and the Munich Philhamonic Orchestra under the baton of Valery Gergiev with masterworks by Strauss and Bruckner in the stunning Festspielhaus Baden-Baden.
With Strauss' 'Four Last Songs', Diana Damrau shows why she has been regarded as one of the most important Strauss interpreters of the present for many years. Afterwards, Bruckner's most popular symphony is heard: a highly melodic work with an Adagio in which the composer reacted to Wagner's death.

- Bruckner, Anton Symphony no. 7 E Major, WAB 107
- Munich Philharmonic Orchestra (Orchestra)
- Damrau, Diana (Soprano) sopran
