Richard Strauss liked to blow his own trumpets…and his horns, trombones and tubas. So when he used a colossal orchestra to tell the epic story of an imaginary hero, it’s not hard to work out who he actually had in mind! This is Ein Heldenleben – and with Thomas Søndergård conducting, there’s no more stirring introduction to the world of the German Romantics. Well, apart from hearing rising star Sunwook Kim in Brahms’ huge, sunlit Second Piano Concerto.
