Benjamin Appl (baritone) & Graham Johnson (piano)

Outstanding German baritone Benjamin Appl joins forces with Graham Johnson, one of the world’s leading Schubertians, for an exciting recital. Through the course of this programme we explore the full expressive gamut of some of Schubert’s finest Lieder, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall. From the tenderness of ‘Am Bach im Frühling’ to the dramatic story-telling in ‘Der Zwerg’ and the tranquility of ‘Im Abendrot’, Schubert’s unparalleled depiction of human emotion is captured in unique clarity.

Benjamin Appl graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and now continues his studies with Rudolf Piernay. He had the great fortune to be mentored by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. Appl joined the BBC New Generation Artists scheme from 2014 until 2016, and was an ECHO Rising Stars artist for the 2015/16 season. Recital appearances include Graham Johnson’s ‘Young Songmakers Almanac’ in London and his debut at Carnegie Hall 2014. Benjamin’s many appearances with the Schubertiade Festival include a ‘Liederabend’, accompanied by Helmut Deutsch, and performances of 'Die schöne Müllerin' with Martin Stadtfeld and Graham Johnson. He made his first appearances at the BBC Proms in 2015 with the Brahms Triumphlied and Carmina Burana.

“Appl is already and an accomplished Schubertian … Appl’s is a noble baritone and, with the purling pianism of Johnson, he creates a love-song of cool ecstasy to both poet and composer in ‘Am Bach im Frühling’… there is much to admire in Appl’s and Johnson’s thoughtful and chilling account of ‘Der Zwerg’.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2016 ****

“Appl possesses both penetrating insight and an enviable control of tone and colour, both laid squarely at the service of the music: the sense of line in Am Bach im Fruhling, for example, is remarkable. Der Zwerg is terrifying, an opera in miniature…Johnson is a stylish, eloquent partner” Classical Music, August 2016 *****

“well recorded and sympathetically accompanied by Graham Johnson … Appl is expressive and personable.” Financial Times, 28th May 2016

“His instinctive feel for these songs is immediately striking and manifests itself in the sort of artlessness that distinguishes the finest Lieder singers: a lack of tension, an easy relationship with the poetry, a confidence in the words and Schubert’s melodies to communicate with nothing but the gentlest helping interpretative hand.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

Schubert:

Bei dir allein, D866/2

Abendbilder, D650

Himmelsfunken, D651

Dass sie hier gewesen! D775 (Rückert)

Drang in die Ferne, D770

Am Fenster, D878

Auf der Bruck, D853

Des Fischers Liebesgluck, D933 (Leitner)

Im Abendrot, D799

Du bist die Ruh D776 (Rückert)

Greisengesang, D778

Willkommen und Abschied, D767


Christian Gerhaher (baritone) & Gerold Huber (piano)

“Christian Gerhaher is one of the most exciting German baritones on the Lieder scene at the moment, with his outstanding natural voice, immaculately groomed to enable a powerful musical sculpting of all he sings. …Gerhaher and Huber are at their riveting and rhythmic best in the trotting gait of 'Drang in die Ferne', the canter of 'Auf de Bruck' and the break-neck gallop of 'Wilkommen und Abschied'.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2006 ****

“Eschewing the eccentricities and exaggerations of some of his contemporaries, Gerhaher wonderfully exhibits the verities of Schubert interpretation in this well-planned and absorbing programme. Everything he does evolves from the song in hand and so accords with all that is needed in performing some of the composer's greatest Lieder.
The title, 'Abendbilder', is interpreted freely but almost all the pieces have some relevance to the dreams and moods of evening. Gerhaher enters into these nocturnal moods with unerring artistry where line, tone and word-painting are concerned. He is at his very best in the three settings of Rückert. That quirky, equivocal piece Dass sie hier gewesen, prophesying the style and harmony of Hugo Wolf, is sung with a full understanding of its inner meaning. Du bist dieRuh is delivered with the fine line and intense concentration such a great song deserves, and the thoughts of an elderly man in Greisengesang are as meaningful as they should be.
Highly appealing throughout is the mellifluousness and breath control, a feature prominent throughout the recital, of the quietly contemplative Im Abendrot, and the appropriate dreaminess brought to the hypnotic barcarolle that is Des Fischers Liebesglück. As a nice contrast, Gerhaher brings virile energy to the fierce riding of Auf der Bruck – and here Gerold Huber deserves as much praise as his partner for portraying the insistent beat of horse's hooves in the piano part so vividly – and the familiar Der Musensohn has just the right verve as does another Goethe setting, the ecstatic Willkommen und Abschied, that brings a rewarding recital to an exhilarating close with Huber – as throughout – seconding the singer with his discerning contribution. The recording is ideally balanced.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

Anne Schwanewilms (soprano), Charles Spencer (piano)

“Franz Schubert's personality was a mix of emotional extremes, which made it difficult for him to portray a world of perfection and beauty in his songs. Instead, his compositions approached any appearance of beauty with touches of subtlety and sensuality. In contrast, Franz Schreker never experienced any difficulty in creating a wonderfully idyllic world in his compositions. On occasion, he was even more successful as a composer than Richard Strauss, much to the latter's chagrin. But then the Nazis came. Beautiful world, where did you go? The Jewish composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold fled to a "beautiful new world", namely America, where he achieved great fame with his film scores - but the silver screen presents only (fine) illusions.” Anne Schwanewilms

Ruby Hughes (soprano) & Joseph Middleton (piano)

Soprano Ruby Hughes releases her debut solo recital disc with pianist Joseph Middleton, an anthology of night songs by Mahler, Britten, Berg and Schubert. Ruby Hughes introduces the programme:

I have always been fascinated by the various moods of night, from the astonishing drama of storms and sunsets to the tranquillity of darkness: a time for contemplation, meditation, sleep and dreams.

Night has at times evoked darker, more foreboding thoughts and philosophical questions concerning death and existence. Alone at night, the state of mind can be awestruck and frightening under the dark canopy of the universe. At other times it feels safe and calm.

These four composers (Schubert, Mahler, Berg and Britten) have been favourites of mine from a very young age. I love their melodies and modulations, their subtlety and passion as well as their genius for setting and enhancing profoundly moving words. They all composed so lyrically for the voice. Their night songs have at times an otherworldly sense of mystery, as in for example Mahler’s Urlicht, Schubert’s Im Abendrot and Abendstern, Berg’s Warm die Lüfte and Britten’s Um Mitternacht. Their songs also work brilliantly when programmed together, revealing influences such as Schubert’s on Mahler, and Schubert’s and Berg’s on Britten.

Alban Berg’s songs achieve a wonderful blend of his modernist musical language with all he inherited from the romantics (i.e. Schubert through to Mahler). Britten too has the power to combine ancient and modern influences to superb effect.

A BBC New Generation artist in 2011–2013, Ruby Hughes held a Borletti Buitoni Trust award, was shortlisted for a 2014 Royal Philharmonic society Music award, and was winner of the first prize and audience prize at the 2009 London Handel competition.
