Roderick Williams (baritone) & Iain Burnside (piano)

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here

Following the critical acclaim for Iain Burnside’s partnership with soprano Ailish Tynan in the first volume of Burnside’s Schubert song series on Delphian, this second volume sees him partnered by another friend and long-term collaborator, baritone Roderick Williams. Their lovingly designed programme takes its tone from the strand of journeying and farewell that threads through Schubert’s song output. Burnside’s pianism is as masterful and vivid as ever, while Roderick Williams, fresh from his triumph at the 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards, combines drama and intellect and shows the qualities that continue to endear him both to critics and to audiences.

“There’s a wonderfully unfussy openness and sincerity to Williams’s delivery that I’ve only ever heard rivalled by Christian Gerhaher...even in the darkest nights of the soul there’s always a flicker of hope which asserts itself more tangibly than in rival interpretations...little miracles from Iain Burnside, too, who plays with such clarity that details which are often glossed over make their presence felt.” Presto Classical, 19th August 2016

“Williams is an unfailingly intelligent singer and is matched every step of the way by Burnside. Intepretatively they barely put a foot wrong... This is an enjoyable - and beautifully recorded - programme.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2016

“This is a most intelligently planned programme and the execution by Roderick Williams and Iain Burnside is superb. The recital is as enjoyable as it is distinguished.” MusicWeb International, September 2016

“an exceptionally imaginative and satisfying piece of programming” BBC Music Magazine, October 2016

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

Florian Boesch (baritone) & Roger Vignoles (piano)

Florian Boesch and Roger Vignoles were shortlisted for a BBC Music Magazine award for their first Hyperion album (Loewe Songs and Ballads). Boesch’s warm, sensuously attractive baritone voice, first-rate diction and remarkable acting ability were enthusiastically praised. Now the duo turn to a selection of Schubert’s Lieder from the dark heart of the repertoire.

“there's plenty of artistry here. For all the conceptual orientation of the disc, Boesch isn't the sort of singer who tells you what to think or feel in this music. He lays it out with hugely attractive (and protracted) clarity and then lets you enter the music a fuller participant.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2014

“We are never far from the solitude of the forlorn wanderer, but there is much variety...This fine disc, pervaded with sadness though it is, has a great deal to offer those who love Schubert's songs.” International Record Review, March 2014

“This is a most distinguished recital that confirms the stature of Florian Boesch as one of the leading Lieder singers currently before the public. His partnership with Roger Vignoles is clearly a fruitful one. Vignoles offers insightful and engaging playing throughout.” MusicWeb International, 26th February 2014

“[Boesch] has an ideal voice, at once dark and dazzling, and his accompanist...is perfect...If a quest for expressiveness can lead Boesch to disturb the line of a phrase, The Gods of Greece, In the Forest, Autumn and the beautiful Mother Earth are splendid.” Sunday Times, 16th February 2014

“Boesch's singing is faultless: he's in fine voice and marvellously alert to every verbal nuance, without ever fracturing the line for the sake of the text. Vignoles, playing some of Schubert's most taxing accompaniments, tirelessly matches his every emotional shift. Very fine.” The Guardian, 13th February 2014 *****

Benjamin Appl (baritone), James Baillieu (piano)

Benjamin Appl won Gramophone “Young Artist of the Year 2016”

He is a former chorister of the famous Regensburger Domspatzen, Appl is now one of the most interesting artists of the new generation, with a great voice, charming personality and great stage presence.

“HEIMAT” his debut album with Sony Classical presents songs from different countries related to the actual topic “HEIMAT” (homeland).

The booklet of the limited first edition contains an additional essay by Neil McGregor, former director of the British Museum (famous for their exhibition about GERMANY) and upcoming director of the Berlin Humboldtforum.

Described as ‘the current front-runner in the new generation of Lieder singers’ (Gramophone Magazine, UK), Benjamin Appl is celebrated by audiences and critics in recital, concerts and opera. He is member of the BBC New Generation Artist scheme from 2014 until 2016 and was an ECHO Rising Star artist for the 2015/16 season, appearing in recital at major European venues including the Barbican Centre London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wiener Konzerthaus, Philharmonie Paris and Cologne and the Laeiszhalle Hamburg. He has won the Gramophone ’Young Artist of the Year’ award in 2016 and Wigmore Hall London has named him a Wigmore Hall Emerging Artist (2015/16). The young baritone became an exclusive SONY Classical recording artist in May 2016.

“Appl is not only a singer of boundless promise, he is already a great artist. This disc shows how versatile he is, with not only great Lieder but interesting rarities too...Appl sounds as if singing is his most natural mode of expression; and since he has an extraordinary beautiful voice, there should be decades of happiness as he continues to expand his repertoire.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2017 *****

“The voice has a burnished, oaky beauty as well as considerable sweetness (well captured in Sony’s natural engineering), while the interpretations are suffused with a gentle intelligence, an instinct for unforced but direct communication and what feels like a real love for the repertoire.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2017

“His Schubert, Brahms and Wolf are impressive, thanks partly to James Baillieu’s finely judged piano playing...Appl was mentored by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and while it’s a bit early to be naming him as successor to that great singer, as some are doing, this disc shows great potential.” The Guardian, 9th March 2017 ****

“Appl is a serious and diligent artist whose best virtue, apart from his brooding publicity snaps, is his mellow timbre and precise German diction.” The Times, 10th March 2017 ***

Rupert Charlesworth (tenor) & Edwige Herchenroder (piano)

Since the dawn of time, night and its mysteries have inspired poets and musicians. This recital for voice and piano recalls that: it is presented as a nocturnal promenade through diverse aesthetics, troubling atmospheres and profoundly contrasting emotions.

The programme features the known (Schubert, Brahms, Fauré) and the lesser known (Bax, Finzi or Berkeley) to form a fascinating ode to the night.

Rupert Charlesworth, one of the UK’s most promising young tenors, is thoroughly at home in this mysterious repertoire.

“As befits a recital given under the Provencal night sky, Rupert Charlesworth offers a panorama of songs about night in its multifarious guises...Charlesworth comes to his varied programme with a bascially youthful, slender tenor voice, which is attractively warm in the middle register, clear and luminous at the top...A nice disc for late-night listening.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2015

Robin Tritschler (tenor) & Iain Burnside (piano)

Tenor Robin Tritschler and pianist Iain Burnside come together once again for this release of Britten and Schubert, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall in January 2014. Robin Tritschler has received numerous awards throughout his career, particularly for the performance of Art Song, and this powerful and, at times hauntingly profound, recital stands as a testament to his great artistry.

Since graduating from the Royal Irish Academy of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, London, Robin Tritschler's numerous awards have included the song prizes at the 2nd China International Singing Competition, the Kathleen Ferrier Awards 2006 and the 2007 Wigmore Hall International Song Competition, as well as the lieder prize at the International Vocalisten Concours in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Robin is a BBC New Generation Artist until the end of 2014, recording and performing across the BBC.

“These performances [of the Hölderlin Fragments] are as bold and as idiomatic as the settings themselves...For Schubert, Tritschler's light lyric tenor is the ideal recreator of spring, babbling brooks, starry and moonlit nights...He brings a particular inflection, a particular poignancy to [the Moore] songs.” BBC Music Magazine, Awards Issue 2015 ****

“Tritschler’s subtlety and responsiveness have never been so keenly captured on disc.” Classical Music, January 2015

“Tritschler's delivery is never overworked, his enunciation clear but always natural, unforced. It's an approach that gives his Schubert Lieder an attractive folk-simplicity while in Britten's folksong arrangements it ensures that things don't get too precious or affected...Tritschler is a serious new fixture of art-song.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2015

“Tritschler, a young Irish tenor of considerable achievement and perhaps more promise, delivers them [the Hölderlin fragments] with conviction, his clear, accurate singing making the most of their variety and the anguish evident in both words and music.” International Record Review, January 2015

Christian Gerhaher (baritone), Gerold Huber (piano)

This album is a great introduction to the deeply absorbing world of Schubert's songs. It features a very personal collection of Schubert songs chosen by Christian Gerhaher, who has performed these songs for many years and has a profound connection to them. The album includes a detailed booklet text with a separate paragraph detailing each song.

Schubert set the verse of over 100 poets to music, composing approximately 650 songs. He selected biblical texts and poetry from classical Greece, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment and the early Romantic era, the poets including Goethe, Schiller, Shakespeare, Petrarca and Heine as well as his Austrian contemporaries and friends.

About Christian Gerhaher

Christian Gerhaher's exemplary lied interpretations with Gerold Huber set standards – their recordings have repeatedly been highly acclaimed. The lied duo appears on the stages of major international recital venues, for instance at the Wigmore Hall in London, in the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Cologne and Berlin Philharmonie, the Konzerthaus and the Musikverein in Vienna.

Christian Gerhaher is a regular guest at the Schwetzingen Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival, the London Proms, the Edinburgh and Lucerne Festivals, the Salzburg Festival, as well as the Aspen and Tanglewood Festivals in the USA.

After the successful world premiere of Heinz Holliger's cycle Lunea on 23 fragments by Nikolaus Lenau in spring 2013, the season 2013/2014 will see/has seen the premieres of two other new works – both dedicated to him: In the fall a new song cycle by Jörg Widmann with performances in Vienna, Frankfurt, London and Luxembourg (combined with Schumann and Fauré) as well as Goethe's Harzreise im Winter by Wolfgang Rihm – an exciting program juxtaposing settings on Goethe's texts by Wolfgang Rihm and Franz Schubert. The premiere will take place in June 2014 at the Mozart Festival Würzburg followed by concerts at the Rheingau Musik Festival and the Salzburg Festival.

“Gerhaher’s outstanding qualities – a heavenly baritone, crisp diction, intelligent address – once again find an echo in Huber’s pianism.” Financial Times, 26th July 2014 ****

“With his lyric high baritone at its freest, Gerhaher has the uncommon gift of making everything alive, specific, while always sounding natural...a superlative recital by a singer who for vocal beauty, poetic insight and expressive immediacy is surely unsurpassed in Lieder today.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014

“One of the most symbiotic partnerships in chamber music...Friends since childhood, they have performed lieder since they were teenagers. This recording of works by Schubert is a marvel of the fusion of text and melody, suffused with the beauty of Mr. Gerhaher’s mellow, smooth timbre.” New York Times, 18th December 2014

“Gerhaher brings his special qualities, the most beautiful lyric baritone voice of any lieder specialist I know, entirely natural and immaculate German diction, and musical and expressive insights that mark him out as one of the greatest lieder singers of any age...the entire programme is vintage Schubert and vintage Gerhaher.” Sunday Times, 10th August 2014

“Beautifully judged playing from pianist Gerold Hubersupports the silky lightness of Gerhaher at his most intimate in these 24 songs; though there are flashes of steel beneath the gossamer that are all the more exciting for their sparse deployment.” The Observer, 13th July 2014 ****

“gently beautiful and deeply rewarding...Gerhaher simply lets the music flow through him, his voice its unassuming servant. The pitching is immaculate, the breath control so easeful as to be imperceptible. He seems incapable of making an ugly sound.” The Telegraph, 15th September 2014 *****
