Christian Thielemann is a compelling advocate for German music, and his Salzburg Festival 2020 program with the Wiener Philharmoniker is smack-dab at the heart of his favored repertoire. For his long-awaited return to the Summer Festival, he opens with Wagner's Wesendock Songs, considered musical sketches for the opera Tristan und Isolde, with terrific Latvian mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča as soloist. The centerpiece is Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4, the Romantic. Storms of applause. “Together with an orchestra that breathes with her, Elīna Garanča proved that she currently represents the non plus ultra in the mezzosoprano category. Grandiose the fusion of intensity and noble sound” Der Standard // “An event with goose bumps“ Kurier
