Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Hendricks's girlish, smiling phrasing refreshes both word and music. She and the pianist, in fact, sing and play like innocents... [a] beautiful vocal performance." -Gramophone

The Winterreise is considered the absolute masterpiece of Lieder cycles. At the high point of German romanticism, one year before his death, Schubert offers a magnificent testament to singers. Few women have tackled this monument of song; Barbara Hendricks has taken nearly 40 years to perform it, and finally record it, for our listening pleasure.
