Schubert: Die Schone Mullerin, Winterreise, Schwanengesang / Wolfgang Holzmair, Imogen Cooper

Notes & Reviews:

Wolfgang Holzmair and Imogen Cooper have long formed a song partnership of deep mutual insight and understanding. On this set, they perform some of the most intensely expressive Lieder in the Classical and Romantic tradition, culminating in the short-lived joy and the deepest sorrow of Schubert's three great cycles.

An additional CD rings Holzmair and Cooper together for Beethoven's only song cycle as well as cycles by Schumann.

Gramophone
Holzmair is throughout at one with the wonderfully resourceful and imaginative Cooper... a warm yet intimate recording.
