Irmgard Seefried (soprano) & Erik Werba (piano)

After Irmgard Seefried’s death in 1988, her contemporary Elisabeth Schwarzkopf – never one to dish out compliments lightly – commented: ‘All of us envied her, because what we had to achieve laboriously worked for her so naturally and as a matter of course, because she knew how to sing from the heart’.

Freshness, spontaneity, natural warmth of feeling, allied to a voice of gleaming beauty and a delightful stage presence: these were the hallmarks of a much-loved soprano who for three decades charmed and moved audiences in the theatre and concert hall, her face as expressive as her voice. As John Steane memorably put it in Gramophone, ‘it was as though she wore her own spotlight’.

Born in the Swabian town of Köngetried in 1919, Seefried was ‘discovered’, aged twenty, by Herbert von Karajan in Aachen, where she made her operatic debut as the Priestess in Aida. In 1943 she sang Eva in Die Meistersinger for the Wiener Staatsoper, initiating an association that lasted until 1976. It was in Strauss and Mozart that Seefried was most admired.

Issued over eleven single-disc volumes, Deutsche Grammophon / Eloquence pays tribute to Irmgard Seefried, bringing back to circulation several recordings that have never previously been issued on CD. The music ranges through opera and oratorio, with an especially generous offering of art song from a range of composers, including Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Hindemith and Egk. The notes for the series have been written by that leading connoisseur of the voice, Richard Wigmore.

Seefried was no less delightful as a recitalist than she was an opera singer, as can be heard on these recordings of Schubert, Schumann and Cornelius made with Erik Werba, her pianist of choice during the 1950s and ‘60s. In Schubert her naturalness was an invaluable asset: say, in her tender shaping of the exquisite bel canto melody of ‘Ave Maria’ (1825), Ellen’s prayer to the Virgin from Walter Scott’s The Lady of the Lake, or the charm, without winsomeness, she brings to Goethe’s wryly insouciant tale of blighted innocence, ‘Heidenröslein’.

Her gift of candid simplicity is enchantingly heard in Peter Cornelius’s artless Weihnachtslieder. Any singer of Frauenliebe und -leben must avoid mawkishness and convey a journey from dazed innocence through incredulity, excitement and joy in motherhood, to numbness in bereavement. Seefried’s distinctive timbre, combining the freshness of youth with a glowing warmth, gives her a head start. Beyond this, she experiences the cycle so vividly that, for its duration, hers seems the only possible way. Here, as in the Gedichte der Maria Stuart, we have singing of passionate immediacy and eloquently exploiting the hints of mezzo depth within her luminous soprano.

“Nineteenth-century German Lieder recorded with Seefried's regular accompanist, Erik Werba, between 1952 and 1962. Both are perfectly idiomatic, performing with easy confidence.” BBC Music Magazine *****

“[The Mary Stuart songs] are all sung with conviction” Gramophone Magazine

“the quality of the voice, the balance and the piano tone are of amazing fidelity. Interpretatively too, Mme Seefried is at her most penetrating and revealing, scrupulous with words and their meaning, wonderfully subtle at varying the mood in strophic songs, immensely vital in rhythm.” Gramophone Magazine

Matthias Goerne (baritone)

Not 'just another Schubert recording, but a major artistic achievement’ [Christian Girardin, harmonia mundi] Matthias Goerne is totally invested in the recording and editing process. Vol. 9 (the last one in the series) is due out towards the end of 2014. Future recordings will include Brahms with Christophe Eschenbach and Mahler (arr. Berio) Early Songs to be recorded in September 2014 with Josep Pons and the BBCSO.

“The virtues of this series are well enough known by now...Goerne is excellent in [Der Tod und das Mädchen and Wanderers Nachtlied] as playing to his strengths. He also shines in the more thoughtful songs, such as Litanei...Both accompanists are first-rate” MusicWeb International, 26th February 2014

“With his velvety, 'covered' timbre, and innate seriousness of manner, Goerne has never been a natural bringer of jollity...Yet if we accept that lightness and charm are not within Goerne's orbit, his singing is always scrupulous...At his finest, here and elsewhere, Goerne touches greatness as a Schubertian.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014

“the entire first disc is beautifully shaped as darkness gives way to early spring light, exaltation and consolation...at times, I wished someone could have coaxed just a fleeting smile or moment of charm from the ever-earnest Goerne. But his deep seriousness never fails to come up with rare insight, and yields many unforgettable performances here.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 ****

“Goerne, particularly in the performance of Schubert’s songs, is perhaps the best of them all … This is a constantly interesting collection of songs, wonderfully performed, to set beside Goerne’s seven earlier Schubert recordings for harmonia mundi.” International Record Review, May 2014

Werner Güra (tenor) & Christoph Berner (fortepiano Rönisch)

Born in Munich, Werner Güra has a reputation especially as an interpreter of lieder. His recordings for harmonia mundi, including the great cycles of Schubert, Schumann and Wolf and vocal ensembles by Brahms and Schumann, have all been widely acclaimed.

“It comprises 19 songs, all stylishly and beautifully sung by the tenor Werner Güra. The six Goethe settings include such familiar contrasts as Heidenröslein and Ganymed, while Willkommen und Abschied itself, more of a rarity, is heroically sung. The strength of Güra’s tone without any loss of quality has always been his strong point.” Sunday Telegraph, 29th January 2012

“His fresh lyric tenor combines well with Berner’s bright yet warm-toned fortepiano — he twinkles at Goethe’s ironic description of a water nymph as “eine feuchtes Weib”, literally a “damp woman” — while Berner brings drama to the piano parts of Auf der Bruck, Willkommen und Abschied and the haunting, yearning Herbst.” Sunday Times, 12th February 2012

“Berner, playing an 1872 Rönisch fortepiano, shows keen attention to every detail. Güra, outstanding in his unfussy, intense delivery, is a formidable, rousing guide.” The Observer, 26th February 2012

“Gura's strong, unaffected tenor voice is a pleasure to listen to, and Berner, who has an impressive keyboard freedom grounded in reliable technical skill, is a responsive accompanist: they perform as one, although too often their approach to a song somehow misses an essential quality of that particular piece of music.” International Record Review, March 2012 ****

“Gura and his fortepianist, Christoph Berner, have mapped out a trajectory of the Romantic view of human emotional life...At each stage, both musicians show perfect sympathy with Schubert's own engagement, ideal empathy with each other, and a shrewd sensitivity to musical and expressive scale.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2012 *****

“Gura is never dull. 'Der Wanderer' is intensely 'lived', the opening bleak and desiccated...One of the most eloquent performances of all is the last song, 'Nachtstuck'...Here, singer and pianist show an acute sensitivity to harmonic colour that characterises this whole rewarding recital.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

Bernarda Fink (mezzo) & Gerold Huber (piano)

The pieces selected for this recording mark out the milestones of a brief, rich and critically important career as a song composer, ranging in time from 1814 to 1826.Alongside the classic Schubert themes found here, such as deliverance and night, death, flight from the world and hope, we also encounter poets who were more than merely fixed stars in the composer's cosmos, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the writer he most often set, and Johann Baptist Mayrhofer.We can hear for ourselves a captivating, evocative musical language. It speaks of the constant struggle of an individual, his bitterness, his longing, and his desire for deliverance. Yet, however deeply Schubert bathed in this Romantic current, throughout his life art remained for him the only key that might perhaps lead to a 'better world'.And so, in 1817, he took up a text by his friend Franz von Schober to compose an ode to the all-placating 'blessed art' in An die Musik D547: music, which for Schubert, as he wrote to Schober in 1818, was nothing less than 'my beloved'. Bernarda Fink, has sung in numerous opera productions and has made over fifty recordings with a repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Brahms and Bruckner, many for harmonia mundi and with René Jacobs. She has been flatteringly referred to as the natural successor to the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson and to both [the living] Brigitte Fassbaender and Dame Janet Baker. Gerold Huber studied with Friedemann Berger and Helmut Deutsch in Munich, then attended Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's lied class in Berlin. In addition to his regular appearances with Christian Gerhaher, he also performs with Ruth Ziesak, Cornelia Kallisch, Diana Damrau and Franz-Josef Selig and has also performed with the Artemis Quartet.

“One of the most versatile, as at ease in Baroque repertoire as in music from Handel and Mozart to Schumann, Fink's rich, warm voice boasts the perfect blend of colour and clarity.” The Observer

“[Fink's] Schubert springs directly from the eloquence of her diction, her understanding of the text and the velvet-like beauty of her exquisite mezzo-soprano. Nobody who loves Schubert should forgo the pleasures of this fine singing and playing. One of the records of the year, no doubt” Sunday Times, 24th August 2008 *****

“We're conscious throughout of a great voice superbly controlled, though [Fink] doesn't give nearly enough attention to words or expressive detail.” Tim Ashley, The Guardian, 12th September 2008 ***

“Supported by Huber's faultless articulation, Fink's tender tone and perfect diction relect every nuance of emotion in the modulations of 'Im Frühling' and 'Dass sie hier gewesen'” The Independent, 7th September 2008

“The clear, unfettered lyrical mezzo of Bernardo Fink makes this a winning new Schubert recital…” BBC Music Magazine, October 2008 ****

“This superlative disc, worthy of 10 stars establishes the mezzo Bernarda Fink as one of today’s great artists. The simplicity of her approach to Schubert is part of her magic. No arch mannerisms, no exaggerated emotion, but no lack of passion and insight. On every track you will find inspiration working at full intensity. She has the poise of a Ludwig. Even in the best known songs, she brings a fresh sense of adventure. Gerhard Huber is he accomplished pianist.” Sunday Telegraph
