Vergnügliches und Raritäten
Im Mittelpunkt dieser Einspielung von Schumann-Liedern stehen Vergnügliches und Raritäten, darunter auch einige weniger bekannte Lieder. Interpret ist der junge Bariton Hanno-Müller Brachmann. Abgerundet wird die CD durch verschiedene Duette und Ensemblestücke, bei denen nochmals Sänger und Sängerinnen aus früheren Folgen zu hören sind sowie als Neuling Katherine Broderick.
Graham Johnson's monumental and triumphant complete Schumann Songs edition comes to an end with an eleventh disc of rarities and delights. The first issue in the Hyperion edition of Schuman's songs, with the soprano Christine Schäfer, included a number of the composer's later lieder, and with this last issue we come full circle in returning to some of the least known songs—music seldom heard on the concert platform. Hanno Müller-Brachmann appears in his debut recording for Hyperion. As well as a devoted lieder singer who has performed with some of the greatest pianists, he is also a considerable presence on the world's opera stages and an acclaimed interpreter of Bach's Passions. He brings all these qualities to this fascinating disc.
Various duets and ensemble pieces are included on this disc and feature familiar and well-loved singers from elsewhere in this series, as well as the winner of the 2008 Kathleen Ferrier Prize: Katherine Broderick. The release is complemented by Graham Johnson's renowned booklet notes, which make these discs things of such inestimable value.
»A real disc of discovery: this is Schumann as he is seldom heard. In this final volume of his revelatory Schumann Songs series, Graham Johnson perceptively writes about, accompanies and presents still more rarities, in the voices of both loyal colleagues and of younger singers whom he keenly champions … Altogether touching and persuasive performances« (BBC Music Magazine)
»Every time a new instalment of Graham Johnson's complete Schumann song recording appears, I'm eager to lay my hands on it. Each one sheds new light on well-loved masterpieces and brings wonderful neglected songs back to light. The singers are shrewdly chosen to fit the character of the songs, the liner notes are a treasure-trove of learning and insight, and Johnson's wonderful playing illuminates every song« (The Daily Telegraph)
»This is the final instalment of Hyperion's complete edition of Schumann's songs, the brainchild of pianist Graham Johnson, who has overseen and prepared the series with great erudition and care … The best songs are also the most disturbing: Der Einsiedler expresses an almost Mahlerian longing for the freedom from human strife that only solitude can bring … Johnson himself is faultless, as always« (The Guardian)
»This disc goes far to vindicating some of Schumann's least-favoured late songs, not least due to Graham Johnson's eloquent advocacy, in print and in performance« (Gramophone)
