Notes & Reviews:

This new CD contains songs about the dark side of life; about suffering, despair, loneliness, and death, with only love to light the way. The scope of bass-baritone Werner van Mechelen's musical activities is all-encompassing. On the one hand he has sung many of the major parts in the opera repertoire; on the other hand he loves lieder and oratorios. His repertoire has included major opera roles in Mozart (Figaro, Don Giovanni), Puccini (Gianni Schicchi), Verdi (Falstaff, Aïda), Alban Berg (Wozzeck, Lulu) and Ligeti (Le Grand Macabre) as well as world premieres of works by Philippe Boesmans, among others.
