The Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition presents all Schubert’s Lieder, over 700 songs, grouped according to the poets who inspired him. Thanks to Bärenreiter’s Neue Schubert-Ausgabe (New Schubert Edition), Tübingen, which uses primary sources, the performers have been able to benefit from the most recent research of the editorial team.
While Schubert’s numerous works for male-voice ensembles were circulated widely, those for female voices remained less well known, despite including several ambitious works of genius.
Ulrich Eisenlohr, praised as the “splendid accompanist” on many of Naxos’s Schubert Lieder discs, and on Mozart’s Complete Songs (8557900-01) joins some outstanding singers on this second volume of Schubert’s delectable part-songs.
