Soprano Diana Damrau performs Strauss and Iain Bell’s setting of words by Christa Palmer, with conductor Gianandrea Noseda.

Iain Bell’s The Hidden Place sets poetry written by Christa Palmer, opera singer and aunt of soprano soloist Diana Damrau, and depicts the intimate moments shared by two lovers throughout the four seasons of the year.

We also hear music by Richard Strauss, journeying from his formative years – Don Juan, the breakaway tone poem which solidified the 24-year-old composer’s reputation and Till Eulenspiegel, which chronicles the misadventures of a German peasant hero – to the final scene of his opera Capriccio, written at the end of his life.
