Notes & Reviews:
This set contains the complete Matthias Goerne Schubert Edition - twelve albums comprising an extensive selection of lieder, accompanied by distinguished pianists and featuring booklet notes by respected music scholar Christophe Ghristi. He writes, "Schubert, in his lieder, alerts us to our condition as short-lived wanderers. A solitary voice sings of life's torments and desires, accompanied only by that equally solitary instrument, the eminently self-sufficient piano. No theatrics here, but the echo, at last perceptible, of our innermost depths, where silence reigns, where all is weighty, and nothing deceives us."
