The first ever German album of Natalie Dessay (this is her first Schubert album and her first lieder album). 4 Lieder have never been sung by a woman before. recorded with Philipp Cassard (piano) in Berlin, Siemensvilla on November 28th – December 3rd, 2016. Album supported with World Tour Dates in Spring 2017. from Schiller and Goethe to Heine, the Schubertian Lied, which is based on the best German poets, is a reflection of the intimate thoughts of the composer who realizes an outstanding fusion between the poetic verb and the musical lyricism. Natalie Dessay is a regular collaborator with Michel Legrand and together they have performed all over the world. She is also a committed recital singer, frequently performing French melodies and German Lieder with Laurent Naouri, Maciej Pikulski or Philippe Cassard. In 2015 she revealed new depths of dramatic and rhetorical insight, making her debut as a narrator in performances of Howard Barkler’s monologue Und at the Théâtre Olympia in Tours, and in Paris at the Théâtre de l’Athénée. The project was so successful that it was revived at the Théâtre des Abbesses in Paris in May 2016. Natalie Dessay is the only French female artist to be awarded the honorary rank of Kammersängerin by the Wiener Staatsoper.

Nicholas Phan (tenor) & Myra Huang (piano)

On 'Gods & Monsters', tenor Nicholas Phan explores a life-long fascination with myths and legends via lieder by Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann and Wolf.

Fulfilling a life-long fascination with myths and legends, tenor Nicholas Phan pairs with pianist Myra Huang for Gods & Monsters, an album exploring great Austrian and German Romantic composers' meditations on the title subjects and their fellow-fantastical creatures such as witches, knights and kings. The wide-ranging programme of songs by Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann and Wolf, will be presented in Phan's Wigmore Hall recital debut on 26 February 2017.

“It is good to hear a male singer perform Brahm’s Es war ein Markgraf überm Rhein and Mendelssohn’s Hexenlied, and Huang’s fleet fingers make light of some fearsomely virtuosic accompaniments. At his best, Phan offers some exquisitely calibrated soft singing supported by a rich acoustic an crystal-clear sound” BBC Music Magazine, March 2017 ***

Read Katherine's exclusive interview with Malcolm Martineau about the project here.

The first volume in a major new recording series across which a host of world-renowned singers draw listeners, decade by decade, through a century of song, from 1810 to 1910. Each volume features a perfectly planned, varied programme performed by household names, whilst the series overall creates a comprehensive survey of song right through the nineteenth century – an invaluable teaching asset, as well as a joy for listeners.

The opening volume, 1810-1820, includes songs from Austria, Bohemia, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, by Franz Schubert, Fernando Sor, Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Fabry-Garat, Sophie Gail, Václav Tomášek, Giovanni Battista Viotti, and Carl Maria von Weber.

Singers in this first volume include the distinguished Canadian tenor Michael Schade, sopranos Lorna Anderson and Sylvia Schwartz, mezzo Dame Ann Murray and bass Florian Boesch, accompanied by the series’ creator, pianist Malcolm Martineau.

Singers for volumes 2 & 3 (released at 4-monthly intervals) include Sarah Connolly, John Mark Ainsley, Christina Gansch, Anush Hovhannisyan, Christopher Maltman and Angelika Kirchschlager, with further stars of today – and of the future – appearing in future volumes.

Extensive presentation includes 72-page booklet with authoritative liner note in three languages by renowned song expert and series consultant Prof Susan Youens, with full texts and translations, together with session photographs.

“The start of a remarkable project, allowing the listener to roam a century of European song, intelligently curated and artfully performed” Classical Music, August 2016 ****

“Schade is always an involved, communicative singer, eagerly responsive to mood and verbal detail, and excelling in tenderness and intimacy…the diamond-bright Spanish-English soprano Sylvia Schwartz also makes her mark, finely sustaining the high tessitura of the rapt ‘Wiegenlied’…Malcolm Martineau’s luminous touch and rhythmic point are priceless assets throughout” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

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.

“[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

“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 *****

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
