Notes & Reviews:

A new and exquisite collection of German songs from counter-tenor Andreas Scholl, providing a perfect balance between text and music.

The choice of music reflect Scholl's belief that music need not be confined in performance to a particular voice type, as long as "the singer's approach is true".

Scholl pulls off a braura display in Schubert's An Mignon, singing in both the counter-tenor and baritone register.

The performance of these songs reveals an intuitive understanding between singer and accompanist, Andreas Scholl and Tamar Halperin.

Repertory based on his concert touring program of 2012.

The Times, November 2012
On one level Wanderer gives the listener abundant pleasure...Scholl's diligent phrasing, purity of tone and lack of tricks bring...rewards...His piano partner, Tamar Halperin, is deft and poetic...Listen a little deeper, though, and limits to this pleasure emerge. Up at the top of Scholl's register the more the voice seems trapped in a narrow pipe with no room for clear articulation of words or subtle changes of colour and weight.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
Scholl brings the same commitment to the Classical and Romantic repertory as he does to Purcell and Dowland. His priorities, as he states on the packaging, are 'simplicity and sincerity'...As a recitalist, Scholl is less a story-teller than a weaver of spells, unleashing a fully conceived emotional state and sustaining it.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2013
Scholl is seeking out that place in German Lieder where folksong seems to transmute into art song: simplicity is all, and the Brahms songs are performed with virtually no interpretative gloss, allowing words to speak purely through the register and harmonic underlay of their setting.
