Strauss' "Four Last Songs"

To my way of thinking, the famed Strauss "Four Last Songs" are beautiful in any order, but, what with their order always programmed after an order created by publisher Boosey & Hawkes, and-contrary to popular belief-not an order dictated by Strauss, I find more interest and vocal variety can be gathered if one sings them out of the standard order. A little innovation is welcomed by listeners, providing, naturally, one can sing them naturally!
