Third and final recording in renowned British tenor James Gilchrist’s series of Schubert song recitals for Orchid Classics, following on from Die schöne Müllerin (ORC100006) and Schwanengesang (ORC100013)
Both earlier releases have been received with much critical acclaim, with Andrew Mellor in BBC Music referring to “Gilchrist’s treasure-trove of a voice”
“he is now unsurpassed amongst lyric tenors in sweetness and technical security, and for his musical intelligence” The Independent
Notes in English and German.
Auf dem Flusse
Der greise Kopf
Der stürmische Morgen
22nd October 2011
“Gilchrist rejects the declamatory style of delivery currently fashionable...adopting instead a more subtle, understated and - in the long run - more moving approach...he makes a believably vulnerable journeyman...Tilbrook again proves an inspired, imaginative collaborator and the Potton Hall recording is superb.”
“Gilchrist and Tilbrook deliver some of the more expansive songs very well...Gilchrist's voice is admirably suited to gentle, lyrical singing.”
