Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This second volume of Hyperion's newest lieder series features the great dramatic and musical gifts of mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager. Internationally renowned on the opera stage, the concert hall and the recording studio, Kirchschlager is an ideal performer of these most varied, complex and emotionally charged songs. She is accompanied by the multi-Gramophone Awardwinning Julius Drake, who curates the series. The songs recorded here encompass thirty years of Liszt's life, with texts in German, French and Italian, and contain many examples of the hidden beauties of this undervalued and unknown strand of the composer's works. Detailed and informative notes by Susan Youens and a beautifully intimate recorded sound complete a volume which will be indispensable to any lover of song.

The Guardian, July 2012
One of the most important recording projects of recent years...Kirchschlager is exquisite and intensely dramatic by turns, though occasionally she could do with more weight in her lower registers. Drake is outstanding throughout.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2012
Kirchschlager's rich, resonant mezzo finds beauties everywhere on this disc, from heights of drama to imtimacies of reflection, and at every turn Drake is with her. I particularly like the way they take their time in the more meditative songs, with expressive silences.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2012
Several of the songs on the disc are in effect dramatic scenas. Finding a wide palette of colours within her naturally warm mezzo, Kirchschlager is in her element...this recital should open many ears to the richness and variety of his songs.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
I heard Kirchschlager in recital at Boston's Jordan Hall this past season and found her to be an extremely engaging and captivating performer who inhabits songs fully, sometimes seeming coquettish and sometimes solemn. She uses a full range of expression here as in 'Die Drei Zigeuner'. Here is lieder singing of the highest order, and this is as good a recording of Liszt songs as you will find. Much as I still admire the fine recording by Elizabeth Kulman (S/O 2012), no other recording of Liszt songs entrances me as much as this.
