Lyrics by Hesse: The cool rain seeps into the flowers

The video above is of Renee Fleming singing September, one of Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs. Last night I saw Deborah Voigt perform the songs. Some of the most beautiful and haunting music ever written. I have five different recordings of this piece of music; each performer brings something new to it. Jesse Norman’s recording introduced me to the songs. If you’re listening to the Four Last Songs, be sure to turn up the volume.
