Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In this bicentenary year of his birth, Mendelssohn's music is enjoying a long overdue renaissance. Hyperion's contribution to the composer's rehabilitation includes their acclaimed series of songs and duets. It is remarkable to realize that compositions by a major composer could go unpublished and unheard for more than 150 years. Pianist Eugene Asti has gathered together 46 previously unknown songs from various stages of this composer's sadly truncated life. These newly published works reveal a willingness to experiment with novel song forms and highly expressive harmonies. For this disc, Eugene Asti has gathered together a dazzling selection of singers, including some of the most exciting young artists working today.

'What a concentration of talent in one place! ... The enterprise is crowned by a barnstorming account from Katherine Broderick of 'Hexenlied'' (International Record Review)

'Loges - and Asti's committed piano-playing ... provide consistent pleasure' (The Sunday Times)

'Stephan Loges satisfies most consistently with his understanding, beauty of tone and care for legato. Asti is the admirable pianist throughout and in two of the items is responsible for the completion of songs left unfinished' (Gramophone)

The Times
Hyperion's series of Mendelssohn's neglected vocal pieces continues to spread enchantment, thanks in part to young British talent...Some of the repertoire is modest, but duds are rare, genius is frequent and Mendelssohn's charm almost constant.
