New Release On Decca From Chailly And Lucerne Festival Orchestra

Available from today, a recording by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, conducted by Riccardo Chailly on Decca Classics, featuring some of the greatest works in the orchestral repertoire by Richard Strauss, recorded live at the opening concert of the Lucerne Festival, 2017.

This collaboration between the LFO and Chailly,  follows their world premiere recording of Stravinsky’s Funeral Song in 2018, and is the first time that Chailly has recorded the music of Richard Strauss. Riccardo Chailly has been Music Director of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra since the summer of 2016.

The recording includes Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche (‘Till Eulenspiegel’s merry pranks’), Tod und Verklärung (‘Death and Transfiguration’) and Also sprach Zarathustra (1896), made famous in the Stanley Kubrick 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the monumental tone-poem inspired by Nietzsche’s words.
