It’s not generally known that Max Reger, while gradually adding to his own catalogue, turned to arranging works by other composers as a form of relaxation between producing his own compositions. Unlike Reger’s original works for voice and orchestra, which largely reflect the tradition of the French orchestral song, his arrangements were usually made with staging considerations in mind.

“An attractive collection, well performed.” MusicWeb International, 24th October 2016

“There’s some superb singing here…’Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer’ is creepily introverted, and [Iranyi is] charming in Reger’s own ‘Wiegenlied’. Tenor and baritone, Rainer Trost and Paul Armin Edelmann, are both outstanding…Gregor Bühl’s conducting is admirably spacious and unhurried…he brings out the beauty of Reger’s instrumentation to perfection” Gramophone Magazine, December 2016

Klaus Mertens (bass/baritone) & Tini Mathot (fortepiano)

This recording of Schubert lieder features many of his most popular works in the genre including Die Forelle (The Trout), Erlkönig (The Earl King), Der Tod und das Mädchen (Death and the Maiden), and the title track An Die Musik (To Music). The bass-baritone soloist is the noted Bach specialist Klaus Mertens, and the fortepiano is played by Ton Koopman’s wife and regular musical partner Tini Mathot.

The German bass-baritone Klaus Mertens has made a name for himself as one of the most prominent and sought-after interpreters of the Baroque oratorio, and has recorded the great vocal works of Johann Sebastian Bach with numerous conductors. A soloist on more than 140 CDs and DVDs, he was a regular collaborator on the critically-acclaimed complete recording of Bach Cantatas by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir. He has also recorded Schubert’s great song-cycle Wintereisse for Challenge.

The keyboard player Tini Mathot enjoys a close collaboration with her husband and former teacher, Ton Koopman. Together they give recitals and perform in chamber music projects in the major concert halls of Europe, the United States and Japan. Tini Mathot regularly appears as a soloist together with Ton Koopman in concertos for two (or more) harpsichords and orchestra, and alongside him has recorded double concertos by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, J.F. Reichardt and C. Schaffrath with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

Matthias Goerne (baritone), Eric Schneider (piano) and Helmut Deutsch (piano)

Matthias Goerne has received worldwide praise for his warm, fluid baritone and his profound interpretations. Highly respected as a Lieder singer, he is a frequent guest at renowned festivals and prestigious venues like the Carnegie and Wigmore Halls. From 2008 to 2011, Matthias Goerne will perform and record Schubert on 11 CDs for harmonia mundi and important venues all over the world will present the complete series of Schubert recitals with Matthias Goerne in their coming seasons. This second volume speaks of death, of the 'Wanderer', and of the relationship between Schubert and his poets .

. . For this occasion the singer has called on two travelling companions who have left a lasting artistic impression on the world of lieder: Eric Schneider and Helmut Deutsch.

Helmut Deutsch's career as a song accompanist began with Irmgard Seefried; he spent twelve years in an intensive collaboration with Hermann Prey, and has been the partner of many other celebrated singers. Eric Schneider has appeared notably with Christine Schäfer, Matthias Goerne, Christiane Oelze and Stephan Genz. He is a regular guest with these partners at the Schwarzenberg Schubertiade, Salzburg Festival and the Tanglewood Summer Music Festival.

“Goerne… and Schneider offer grave and solemn performances of Goethe's Mignon and Harper songs, before ending on a higher note, celebrating the eternal joy of love in 'Willkommen and Abschied'.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2009 ****

“Battered by Bryn Terfel dramatics, the ears cried out for a pure dose of lieder from a master of the craft. Matthias Goerne… seems to own a different shade of baritonal colour for every syllable Schubert wrote. The voice is sweet and serene, even at fff, and the shifts that Goerne applies to the changing of seasons and the fickleness of love are done with enviable delicacy. More reticent than Fischer-Dieskau or Thomas Quasthoff to bend a line for expressive emphasis, when Goerne takes a liberty the effect is breath stopping… T his is not an album to gorge at one go. Take it two songs a night before bedtime, and it might see you through to the end of recession.” Norman Lebrecht, Evening Standard CD of the Week

“Goerne used to record for Decca, but it apparently had no interest in his 12-volume Schubert compendium, so the less ruthlessly commercial Harmonia Mundi comes to the rescue, for which the France-based company deserves the highest praise. From a vocal point of view, few male singers, even Fischer-Dieskau, command such a rich palette of colours as Goerne does here…he goes where Dieskau never ventured: he includes two of Mignon's songs, Heiss' mich nicht reden and Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt, as well as the Harper trilogy… In the middle Harper song, Mayrhofer's Nachtstück and Nähe des Geliebten (Nearness of the Beloved), Goerne approaches the sublime and captures perfectly the wry wit of Goethe's sly dig at water-nymphery, Der Fischer, in which the surprise encounter of an angler with a "moist woman" is wryly underlined by Schubert. Luxury support from Deutsch and Schneider sets the seal on an outstanding issue.” Sunday Times Classical CD of the Week

“This promises to be a landmark series, up there with Hans Hotter and Fischer-Dieskau.” The Observer

“Here elegy, fatalism and death-longing predominate and in such repertoire Goerne's mellow, darkly rounded timbre, expressive diction and care – rare in Lieder singers today – for a true, 'bound' line are well nigh ideal. Even at the most anguished fortissimo, his tone never grows harsh or hectoring. Perfectionism like Goerne's has inevitably provoked charges of over-calculation.
Some might protest at the ultra-slow tempo for Du bist die Ruh. Yet Goerne's beauty of tone and phrasing (founded on seemingly superhuman reserves of breath), and a rapt intensity that rises to spiritual radiance in the final verse are mesmerising. At a more conventional tempo, he sings An die Musik as a simple, sincere confession of faith, with affectionate touches of rubato (and how eloquently Helmut Deutsch's left hand duets with the voice). Elsewhere Goerne's unsentimental tenderness can illuminate little-known songs that seem ordinary on the printed page – Abschied von der Harfe, say, or the quasi-operatic lament Der Sänger amFelsen. He even appropriates, successfully, two of Mignon's songs, giving one of the most desolate and – in the central section – disturbed performances of Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt you will hear.
True to form, Goerne makes an uncommonly melancholy serenader in An die Laute and DesMädchens Liebeslauschen, which never smiles. Yet he can lighten up, as in the story-telling of DerFischer and Wie Ulfru fischt. Like Deutsch on the first disc, Eric Schneider fully matches Goerne in acumen and command of colour, not least in a performance of Nachtstück of mingled grandeur, mystery and compassionate gentleness.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“Goerne's virtuoso vocal sculpting draws you into the inner landscape of each song, his warm, expressive baritone shaping detail often understated by lesser artists. This promises to be a landmark series, up there with Hans Hotter and Fischer-Dieskau.” The Guardian, 12th October 2008

Julian Prégardien (tenor & recitation), Marc Hantaï (transverse flute), Philippe Pierlot (baryton) & Xavier Diaz-Latorre (guitar)

In their 'Schubertiade', Julian Prégardien and his instrumental friends recreate the special artistic mood one could have felt in Schubert’s day in a Viennese salon. To evoke that atmosphere, they have created a new collage of musical and literary fragments associated with the composer, featuring the unusual combination of flute, baryton and guitar.

Three experienced early music specialists with the best credentials – Philippe Pierlot, Marc Hantaï and Xavier Diaz-Latorre, known from the Ricercar Consort, Le Concert des Nations and Les Arts Florissants – gather as a fine instrumental ensemble around one of the young singers most in demand on the current musical scene. With them, he presents his new SACD album “Schubertiade” on the Cologne-based Myrios classics label. Well-known Schubert songs such as 'Heidenröslein', the 'Harpist’s Song' and 'Schwanengesang' alternate here with dances and short instrumental pieces.

“a captivating and most artfully programmed recital in which Pregardien’s tenor is lightly suspended over a guitar’s gentle strumming” BBC Music Magazine, April 2016 ****

“what a beautiful piece of chamber music that is, the way they performed that; they’ve matched their sounds absolutely magically and they transport us from a completely different place from where we expect to be when we put our disc of Schubert Lieder into the player, so all credit to them for making something so persuasive … it is very, very stylish and sensitive and intelligent music making, and it is very compelling.” CD Review, 14th May 2016

Hermann Prey (baritone) & Gerald Moore (piano)

The world of the liederabend or song recital, seems to have been a more common aspect of our musical life only a few years ago, even if we don’t pay too much attention to the occasional lament today about the decline in the art of singing (a lament no doubt as old as singing itself). But from today’s perspective it is indisputably impressive how Hermann Prey,

the successful opera singer, here offers a Schubert song recital grouped around the 'Schwanengesang', and all done with unimpeachable taste, mastery and seriousness, and interpreted in full possession of his enviable vocal powers.

Given his magnificent achievement in the field of art song, and the vast volume and consistently high quality of his Lieder oeuvre, it is not surprising that Schubert's songs have been recorded numerous times. It is not surprising either that many composers, such as Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Benjamin Britten, Hector Berlioz, Max Reger and Anton Webern made arrangements of Schubert's songs. What is surprising, however, is the fact that these arrangements —made by some of the greatest composers in musical history—are so seldom heard either in concert or on record.

With the release of this album, hopefully that situation will change. It combines 17 Schubert compositions, of which 13 were orchestrated by late-romantic German composer Reger Max, and four by a member of the Second Viennese School, Anton Webern. When listening to these songs, the listener will discover that these arrangements are made with such craftsmanship that they themselves became unparalleled works of art. The performers on this SACD are the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and German tenor Christian Elsner, conducted by Maestro Marek Janowski. The album's accompanying booklet contains the lyrics to the songs both in German and English, as well as programme notes and artists' biographies.

Mauro Peter (tenor), Helmut Deutsch (piano)

In August 2014 young Swiss tenor Mauro Peter gave a highly acclaimed Lieder recital at the famous Schubert festival "Schubertiade" in Schwarzenberg, Austria.On the program: famous Schubert songs on poems by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Such was the succes, that Swiss radio DRS2 Kultur immediately took the decision to record this unique recital and asked SONY CLASSICAL to participate in a co-production of the album.

Born in Lucerne, Switzerland, Mauro Peter received his musical training with the Luzerner Singknaben, at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München with Fenna Kügel-Seifried, and in Helmut Deutsch's Lied class. In 2012 the young tenor was the winner of Peter Schumann Competition in Zwickau, where he was awarded the 1st Prize and the Audience prize. From the 2013/14 season, he was a member of the Zürich Opera House, where his debuts as Ferrando in COSI FAN TUTTE and Don Ottavio in DON GIOVANNI, both in a concert version at the Theater an der Wien under Nikolaus Harnoncourt in spring 2014 were a tremendous success.

Helmut Deutsch is one of the most sought-after pianists for chamber music and vocal accompaniment. He studied piano, composition, and musicology at the Vienna Music Academy, where he was awarded the Vienna Composition Prize. His collaborators have included Irmgard Seefried, Rita Streich, Ileana Cotrubas, Hermann Prey, Hans Hotter, Olaf Bär, Anne-Sofie von Otter, Josef Protschka, Peter Schreier, Bernd Weikl, Brigitte Fassbaender, Keith Lewis, Boje Skovhus, Barbara Bonney, and Jonas Kaufmann. Deutsch is a professor at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich.

“he sings this selection of Schubert's Goethe settings with keen attention to detail, youthful spontaneity, and an ample, attractive sound that is reminiscent of the fine-grained tone of baritone Olaf Bär. The potential in his voice is immediately felt...Deutsch's playing is crisply voiced and textually alert throughout...teacher and pupil achieve performances that combine playfulness and sophistication.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2016 *****

“As he showed in a recent Schöne Müllerin on Wigmore Hall live, Peter is blessed with a winning combination of rich, multi-shaded voice, penetrating insight and a genuine freshness of approach. Well-known songs emerge newly minted, while less-familiar items are delightfully done.” Classical Music, December 2015 ****

“it is the apparent straightforwardness of approach that Mauro Peter and Helmut Deutsch bring to these wonderful songs that help make this collection so enjoyable. The young Swiss tenor's voice, a bright lyrical instrument perhaps more steely than honeyed in its core, is as clean and unaffected as his manner…for fresh, intelligent and natural Schubert this disc can be heartily recommended” Gramophone Magazine, October 2015

“he and Jonas Kaufmann have a lot in common. Peter’s voice is beefy, gleaming yet burnished – not a million miles from the young Kaufmann’s, though Peter’s comfort zone lies a notch higher...his assured delivery holds the attention throughout. Perhaps, like Kaufmann, at this early stage of his career, Peter is not yet the Lieder interpreter he will be. But what there is here is ample to be going on with.” The Guardian, 3rd September 2015 ****
