Meine Rose, Op. 90 No. 2

Mein Schöner Stern! Op. 101 No. 4


World-renowned mezzo-soprano Alice Coote joins forces with leading pianist Christian Blackshaw for a heartfelt exploration of the human soul in love. Coote’s sensitive and transfixing interpretation of the texts, coupled with Blackshaw’s intense and elegant musical expression, bring unique insights to this sublime collection of Lieder. From the passion of ‘Widmung’, ‘Du bist wie eine Blume’ and ‘Die Lotusblume’, to that jewels of the Lieder repertoire Frauenliebe und –leben and Dichterliebe, these kaleidoscopic explorations of love are captured live in recital at Wigmore Hall.

“Coote's approach to both characters is less defined by role-playing than it is by deep feeling and slow-burning intensity...Of the two cycles it is Coote's Frauenliebe that is the more persuasively dramatic, belying the work's Biedermeier hausfrau image. There is nothing cosy or domestic about what Coote does with the material.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2016

“Coote and Blackshaw eloquently search out the cycle's paradoxes.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2016

Diana Damrau (soprano) & Xavier de Maistre (harp)

This DVD, centered on the dazzling German soprano Diana Damrau, complements a ravishing recital with a fascinating documentary.

In March 2013, Damrau achieved “a daring victory” (in the words of the New York Times) when the Metropolitan Opera witnessed her first-ever performances of Verdi’s La traviata. In recent years she has made the transition from glittering, stratospheric roles such as Mozart’s Queen of the Night and Strauss’ Zerbinetta to lyrical heroines of greater emotional complexity, such as Gilda in Rigoletto, Adina in L’elisir d’amore and Lucia di Lammermoor. A series of triumphs at the Met have made her a favourite singer in New York – as she is in other leading opera houses around the world.

In the documentary, Diana Damrau – Diva Divina, the soprano explains that, when she was just 12 years old, it was La traviata (in Franco Zeffirelli’s lavish 1982 cinematic version) that inspired her to make a career in opera. The documentary, directed by Beatrix Conrad, follows Damrau over the course of nine months, covering operatic performances and rehearsals in Geneva, New York, Paris and Munich, recitals, recordings and the arrival of her first child, Alexander.

The recital, filmed at the impressive Festspielhaus in Baden-Baden, pairs Damrau with the French harpist Xavier de Maistre in an exquisite selection of songs by Schumann, Fauré, Debussy and Strauss. Among the best-loved items in the programme are: Schumann’s ‘Widmung’; both Fauré’s and Debussy’s settings of Verlaine’s poem ‘Clair de lune’; Fauré’s ‘Après un rêve’; a harp arrangement of Debussy’s piano Arabesque No 1; Strauss’ ‘Morgen‘ and ‘Ständchen’ and, among the encores, the famed Bach-Gounod ‘Ave Maria’.

In the course of 2013, Damrau and de Maistre will also perform together in concert seasons in Washington D.C., Paris, Geneva, Lyon, Reykjavik, Hamburg, Munich and London and at festivals in Menton, Gstaad, Schwarzenberg and Grafenegg.

Reviewing the performance in Baden-Baden – for which the audience joined Damrau and de Maistre on the stage, rather than being distanced from them in the expansive auditorium – the Badische Neueste Nachrichten wrote of Damrau as a recitalist “whose vocal material and abilities as a storyteller approach perfection”, while the Badisches Tagblatt said:” Damrau’s diction is a pleasure, her vocal flexibility amazing. She sings phrases with ample breath, while her nuanced shadings create subtle changes of mood from song to song.” Die Rheinpfalz described the “gentle, sometimes ethereal tones of the harp” as being in perfect harmony with the “exceptionally subtle and detailed vocal art of the soprano … particularly exceptional are the delicate tracery and colours of Diana Damrau’s singing. Her shaping and accenting of the text is meticulous, her phrasing is of great sensitivity and her dynamics are richly nuanced, yet her song performances are never mannered, rather always full of lyrical feeling.”

Kirsten Flagstad (soprano) & Edwin McArthur (piano)

The first of four 2-CD “Flagstad Recitals” features Kirsten Flagstad in Brahms and Schubert on CD1 as well as CD premieres of songs by Schumann (including her previously unpublished “Zum Schluss”), Strauss, Wolf and Sinding on CD2. Her great power and control placed her among those with the natural capacity for success in the ‘big’ songs with its special thrill, but there is no want of gentleness in the quieter ones. The American critic, Virgil Thomson, probably spoke for the whole audience when he wrote on Flagstad’s return to the United States in 1947: ‘Never in this writer’s concert-going lifetime has there been available any other vocal artistry of such sumptuous natural acoustics, such perfect technical control and such sound musicianship’.

"Throughout, one is stirred by the sheer beauty of the sound." Gramophone

“deeply felt … wonderfully radiant tone … very touching” [Brahms] “the operatic drama of Der Erlkönig is as memorable as the gently ravishing cantilena of Am Grabe Anselmos” The Penguin Guide to Bargain Compact Discs

"…worth having for the Wolf group alone." Gramophone

Wolfgang Holzmair (baritone), Imogen Cooper (piano)

Wolfgang Holzmair and Imogen Cooper's lieder partnership is the stuff of dreams and their traversal of the Schumann repertoire has won them international plaudits both, for performance as well as the sound engineering on these Philips recordings. Here, brought together for the first time as a collection, is their complete traversal of a vast selection of Robert Schumann's lieder, including all the cycles - the two sets of Liederkreis, the 'Kerner Lieder' and Dichterliebe. Included too are individual songs to poems by Heine and Ruckert, as well as a selection of Myrthen. Two songs Rose, Meer und Sonne, Op. 37 No. 9 and Aus den ostlichen Rosen, Op. 25 No. 25, only appeared previously as part of an Imogen Cooper anthology and are here included to well and truly complete the duo's Schumann survey.

“Singer and pianist work together almost by instinct in thinking themselves into the very heart of these songs... Holzmair's plangent, very Viennese voice bespeaks the vulnerability that lies at the soul of Robert's Eusebius side, heard to mesmeric effect in the great, slower songs of Op 35, but he is just as capable of tramping the ways with Schumann when he is in his Florestan mood.... [Imogen Cooper's] playing throughout the programme is at once supportive of her partner and individual in itself. The recording is faultless” Gramophone Magazine

“Holzmair with his light, tenorish baritone proves a perfect poet in Dichterliebe and Imogen Cooper is an inspired accompanist....[In Liederkreis], too, Holzmair proves a masterly interpreter alert and intense but finely controlled....The sound throughout is impressive,” Penguin Guide, 2010 edition ***

“I was transfixed by the sheer artistry... Rarely have I heard so sensitive, intelligent and gloriously musical a partnership... no one could have asked for more attentive, detailed expressions nor more complete harmony of feeling between singer and pianist” The Independent
