Notes & Reviews:

Austrian baritone Florian Boesch has recorded several critically acclaimed Schubert song cycles for Onyx Classics, including Winterreise, Schwanengesang and his GRAMMY-nominated Die Schne Mullerin. He once again teams up with pianist Malcolm Martineau for a collection of lieder that features the controversial Der Gott und die Bajadere (God and the Dancing Girl). Based on Goethe's 1917 ballad, it tells the tale of of a god who descends to earth in human form to test the quality of mortal love. A young seductive dancer offers him hospitality and a business arrangement soon turns to love. When she awakes in the morning to find him dead she offers herself upon his funeral pyre. Grateful for her devotion, her divine lover rises from the flames and together they ascend into heaven.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2016
The light, textured baritone of Florian Boesch finds excellent employment in this Schubert collection, flawlessly accompanied by Malcom Martineau.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
Boesch confirms himself as the baritone's answer to pianist Mitsuko Uchida, daring a range of hushed dynamics in Schubert that seem to echo the composer's reported words: 'Sometimes it seems as if I do not belong to this world at all.' ... In tandem with the ever-perceptive Malcolm Martineau (a model of clarity, and especially good at animating and colouring Schubert's bass-lines), Boesch's concentrated Innigkeit can be haunting, above all in the many songs of loneliness, alienation and sorrowful regret.
