Anneliese Rothenberger/Andre Previn, Strauss, Four Last Songs

Best I've ever heard, and I've heard many. Rothenberger is just "there" -- so much so, and without unneeded spin, that one hardly needs to look at the translations to grasp what the poems say. By comparison the supposedly classic  Schwarzkopf-Szell sounds coy and mewling, a whole lot of spin. And Betty fudges a good many top notes while Rothenberger just soars. Sound is a bit edgy, though.
