Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven as a giant of the symphony and the sonata has somewhat overshadowed Beethoven as a creator of songs. On this varied and insightful recording, tenor Werner Güra performs a program featuring Adelaide and the first song cycle in history, An die ferne Geliebte, that proves Beethoven's lieder lacked neither appeal nor originality. Accompanist Christoph Berner plays a Streicher fortepiano of 1847 that is perfectly suited to both the songs and to his solo performance of the wonderful Bagatelles of Op.126.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2015
Playing on an 1847 Streicher fortepiano - a direct descendant of the kind of instrument Beethoven knew - Berner relishes t[the Bagatelles'] quirkiness, explosive energy and rarefied lyricism...Gnra's mellifluous tenor has lost none of the freshness of a decade and more ago. He sings An die ferne Geliebte with a wondering, confiding intimacy, punctuated by surges of excited urgency.
