Notes & Reviews:

The first solo recording from Franz-Josef Selig, one of the leading bass singers in the world. This release is particularly interesting, as Schubert's bass lieder are rarely recorded!

The Guardian
The outstanding singing was Franz-Josef Selig's King Mark, whose shattering performance of his long monologue was the emotional highlight of the evening, and which inspired the OAE to their most insightful, impassioned playing.
