SCHUBERT. "Winterreise"

Highlight of the month

Matthias Goerne

Christoph Eschenbach

Matthias Goerne's highly acclaimed series of Schubert lieder recordings concludes with a powerful account of Winterreise. The mood here is tense, urgent, even harrowing. This winter landscape expects no spring to come. In the intimate atmosphere of this recording, more than in concert, Goerne's path to oblivion finds its echo in our innermost selves. Pianist Christoph Eschenbach provides superb accompaniment.

 

Goerne has captivated audiences worldwide with his complete commitment to the composer and text. The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote that Goerne is "the most intellectually and vocally gifted male art-song interpreter of his generation," who was "born to sing" Winterreise.  In it's CD review Gramophone wrote that Goerne is "at his finest, here and elsewhere, Goerne touches greatness as a Schubertian."

 

In France Winterreise has already won the Télérama (4 Clefs), Choice de France Musique and the Diapason d'Or Arte.

Songs without Words

 

ALBUM DETAILS

 

This program featuring the superb pianist Javier Perianes illustrates four essential qualities of the music of Felix Mendelssohn. Music stripped of all superfluity, including the literary aspect (Songs without Words); a gift for creating magical atmospheres (Rondo capriccioso); unconditional admiration for classical order; and a genuine veneration for Bach (Prelude and Fugue). The whole radiant universe of Mendelssohn is encapsulated here.
