Andrew Kennedy (tenor) & Roger Vignoles (piano)

“Andrew Kennedy is an eager, bright-eyed lover: the bloom and the tenderness of the middle range of his voice, in particular, knows just how to bring a luxuriant Straussian intimacy to a song such as 'Seitdem dein Aug' in meines Schaute.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2008 ***

“Vignoles's playing continues to achieve a maximum of freshness and invention… Kennedy's voice is young, sweet, fluent and has what some commentators call "sap". A lot of work and study has gone into this disc and the readings attain a consistently high standard of beautiful music-making.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2008

“Hyperion is an old hand at programming attractively playable discs that make up complete Lied editions. Kennedy's selection has the earlier material, with the Opp 17 and 32 groups given complete. Strauss's choice of poets at this stage in his Lied career may not have been as sophisticated as it became but he never chose a text that didn't inspire a clear musical portrait. Especially well pointed are two Des Knaben Wunderhorn songs ('Himmelsboten' and the droll love-onthe- cheap story of 'Für fünfzehn Pfennige') and the dark, serious 'Sehnsucht'. The better-known 'Ständchen' and what Roger Vignoles's notes call the 'ebullient barnstormer' 'Heimliche Aufforderung' are placed cunningly within the recital order.
Vignoles's playing continues to achieve a maximum of freshness and invention and a chameleon- like closeness to his singer's tone and line. Kennedy's voice is young, sweet, fluent and has what some commentators call 'sap'. Greater naturalness (and especially inwardness) will come in his live and later performances of this repertoire. In the meantime, a lot of work and study has gone into this disc and the readings attain a consistently high standard of beautiful music-making.”

Wolfgang Holzmair (baritone), Therese Lindquist (piano)

“A hopeless mishmash of all sorts of droll, sulky, dirty and worthless street songs, plus a few musty church songs.” There is probably no comparable collection of texts that triggered discussions of an equally controversial nature during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Of all the musical adaptations based on this book of 723 songs, those by Gustav Mahler are probably the most famous, yet Des Knaben Wunderhorn was an inspiration for many other composers, too. Wolfgang Holzmair is both a brilliant singer and an expert in discovering associations and interrelations. His intense and masterly performance, skillfully accompanied by Thérèse Lindquist, sheds light on the different interpretations by composers from Mendelssohn to Schumann and Strauss, from Mahler to Zemlinsky and Schoenberg.

“Holzmair is known for his tireless curiosity and enterprise in pursuing the highways, byways and intersections of Lieder - and this is one of his most irresistable expeditions.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****

“In captious mode you might point to an excess of bardic homeliness...But in such sympathetic performances there are many delights here...These days Holzmair's distinctive tenorish high baritone can grow tight under pressure...But at mezzo-forte and below his voice still sounds well. And characterisation is as imaginative as ever.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2014

Sarah Maeder (soprano), Gérard Wyss (piano)

This is a unique recital of lieder by composers who were contemporaries of one another whose music is likely to appeal to the same music-lover. Alongside relatively familiar songs by Richard Strauss and Gabriel Fauré, from whence the CD takes its title, we are pleased to include rarely-heard examples from Reger, Pfitzner and Wolf-Ferrari. Sarah Maeder is a much-admired soprano who has made a special study of this repertoire, and she is excellently accompanied by the talented Gérard Wyss, to produce a recording that will be highly-prized by connoisseurs of this distinguished repertoire.

“Maeder can certainly turn on the charm but never goes coy, sings always with accuracy, purity and freshness, and articulates very clearly. She is also very fortunate in her accompanist. Gerard Wyss is a class act.” International Record Review, November 2011

Angelika Kirchschlager (mezzo-soprano) & Roger Vignoles (piano)

“Since her full blooming on the operatic stage, Kirchschlager’s mezzo has grown enormously - and her performing character with it. She still knows how to hold a recital audience in the palm of her hand, but now there’s a newly expansive energy firing all she sings […..] Kirchschlager’s dark mezzo smouldered with sensuality,” so wrote the Times after Angelika Kirchschlager and Roger Vignoles’ February 2010 Wigmore Hall performance of the same collection of Hugo Wolf and Richard Strauss songs.

Angelika Kirchschlager is regarded as one of the most distinguished mezzo-sopranos of her generation and in particular is recognised internationally for her interpretations of Richard Strauss. She gives regular solo recitals, balancing her operatic career with lieder performances. Eminent piano accompanist and leading authority on the song repertoire, Roger Vignoles, is her long-standing musical partner.

Now in this collection Kirchschlager and Vignoles collaborate to perform nine Strauss songs as well as Wolf’s lieder to texts by Eduard Mörike and Gottfried Keller. Wolf set 43 of Mörike’s poems to music during a period of intense creativity in which he developed a heady new musical language. Kirchschlager delights in the opportunity to convey this with glorious colouring of phrases which are fittingly matched by the piano. The recording provides encores of music from each composer, including Strauss’ triumphant ‘Nichts,’ a fitting end to a compelling programme.

“What a generous communicator is the vivacious Angelika Kirchschlager. Quirky Hugo Wolf suits her rather better than Strauss's sometimes generic rapture, though she's splendidly scathing in the often archly delivered 'Für fünfzehn Pfennige'. The full extrovert personality seems to unleash the sometimes reticent Roger Vignoles” BBC Music Magazine, December 2010 ****

“listen to [Morgen]...and you will hear a miniature master-class in Lieder singing...Kirchschlager's lightly worn mezzo burnishes a song that is too often over-gilded...It helps that Kirchschlager is such an accomplished singing actress...Vignoles is on tiptop form throughout.” International Record Review, November 2010

“This recital shows the mezzo-soprano at the peak of her powers, richly characterful and infinitely expressive. The same statement can be made about her pianist, Vignoles, in what is quite properly a partnership of equals.” Sunday Times, 28th November 2010 ***

“Few Lieder singers match Angelika Kirchschlager in vibrant stage personality. Even heard 'blind', the Austrian mezzo vividly illuminates each of Wolf's nature rhapsodies, vignettes and character sketches...In the wry and/or touching character studies of Wolf's Six Songs in the Old Style...Kirchschlager the born stage animal is in her element...'Morgen' is moving in its unsentimental sincerity” Gramophone Magazine, February 2011

Anja-Nina Bahrmann, Juliane Banse, Michelle Breedt, Jeongkon Choi, Markus Eiche, Christian Elsner, Brigitte Fassbaender, Brenden Gunnell, Lucian Krasznec, Christiane Libor, Andreas Mattersberger, Martin Mitterrutzner, Anke Vondung, Manuel Walser (vocalists) & Christoph Berner, Burkhard Kehring, Malcolm Martineau, Wolfram Rieger & Nina Schumann (pianists)

To celebrate the 150th birthday of Richard Strauss, TwoPianists Records is proud to introduce a new, authoritative, 9-disc set of the complete works for voice and piano by Strauss – a seminal collection that is set to become the reference standard for these vocal masterpieces, not least because of the inclusion of the first ever recordings of two Strauss songs: “Aus der Kindheit” and “Herbstabend,” TrV226.

Under the artistic guidance of renowned mezzo-soprano, Strauss expert and stage director Brigitte Fassbaender, the project brings together 13 singers, handpicked by Fassbaender, to record the 179 extant songs and two melodramas that comprise Strauss’s oeuvre for voice and piano.

Praised for their performances on the opera stage and in the concert hall, these German speaking singers, the majority of whom are notable Strauss interpreters, have more than done justice to the varying interpretive styles required by the songs.

Presented in chronological order, the collection makes for a fascinating aural experience and listeners will be intrigued by Strauss’s musical development: from his first song, composed at the age of 6 with his mother’s help in writing in the text, to the final song, “Malven”, composed at the age of 84 during the last year of his life. A further distinguishing factor of the present recording, is that every effort has been made to remain true to Strauss’s original intentions, with each song (in its original key) being matched to the correct voice type.

Five distinguished pianists and three solo instrumentalists (violin, horn and trumpet), bring to life the thick orchestral textures of Strauss’s accompaniments, which comprise arguably some of the most fiendishly difficult piano writing in the late-Romantic song literature. Strauss’s works for voice and piano exhibit the very best qualities that we have come to know from this composer: an innate gift for lyricism, a richness of harmonic colours and unmatched vocal allure. And yet, despite the popularity of a dozen or so of these songs, barely thirty of them, rather surprisingly, are regularly programmed in song recitals. This set therefore provides an invaluable source of authentic performances, captured in pristine sound and matched by scholarly musicianship – a noted contribution to Strauss’s recorded legacy that is sure to attract the attention of listeners, critics, performers and scholars worldwide.
