Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Peter Cornelius composed under the spell of Wagner and Liszt, but his songs reveal a remarkable artistic independence. Volume 2 of this complete edition, a collection of songs set to texts by a variety of poets, not least Heine and Holderlin, includes several gems and rarities. They range from Cornelius' time as a student in Berlin to his final years in Vienna and Munich. Volume 1 can be heard on Naxos 8.572556.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
In Volume 1 Landshamer sings 12 songs, Schafer sings 14, and Hausmann sings four. Here Landshamer and Schafer each sing three, Hausmann sings seven, and Begemann sings eight. Landshamer, Schafer, and Begemann have lyrical, mellifluous voices well suited to lieder. Schafer's bright lyric voice is particularly appealing. Landshamer's voice is clear and well placed. Of all the singers Begemann is the most satisfying. His rich and deep voice is more of a bass. When he sings of how "deepest darkness cloaks my life" in 'Am See' he descends softly but impressively to a low C. Veit's accompaniment is impeccable, and it's especially fine in the more virtuosic writing of Cornelius's later songs.
