Spring and Summer with Dorothea Röschmann

From Sveriges Radio:

Haydn: The Seasons (Spring and Summer)

Dorothea Röschmann, soprano
Joachim Bäckström, tenor
Andrew Foster-Williams, baritone
Swedish Radio Chorus and Orchestra
Philipp von Steinaecker, conductor

The first half of the program contains Haydn’s Symphony 94 (which contains that famous "Papa Haydn" theme that the baritone also sings in the Seasons.) The intermission feature includes:
  • 59 minutes: English Interview about the Seasons with Andrew Foster-Williams and Joachim Bäckström (sadly, DR does not participate)
  • 1 hour, 10 minutes:  DR singing a (Handel?) aria
The Seasons starts at about 1 hour, 23 minutes.
Everyone is in great voice, and the chorus sounds particularly spring-like, too!


  1. Thanks for the timings, Rob - v helpful :-) That Handel aria that Frau R sings is "Süße Stille" from her Neun Deutsche Arien album, btw.

    1. Thanks, PG! That makes sense. While all I heard from the announcer was blah blah blah Dorothea Röschmann blah blah blah. I thought it sounded like Handel, and I knew she was singing in German, and well.. Thanks for identifying that! :-)
