The Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to join with celebrated soprano Taryn Fiebig in a performance of Richard Strauss's supremely beautiful Four Last Songs. Settings of poems by Joseph Eichendorff and Herman Hesse, with their rich contrapuntal colours, rapturous melodies and radiant orchestration, these songs are consummate examples of Strauss's gift for expressing words through music. Taryn Fiebig is a principal artist with Opera Australia, recently appearing as Musetta in La Bohème and Gudrun in Götterdämerung. She is also well known to Sydney audiences for her performances with Pinchgut Opera and the Sydney Philharmonia.
