Notes & Reviews:

Johann Karl Eschmann was born in Winterhur, Switzerland on April 12, 1826. His father was a music teacher and introduced Johann to music at an early age. This lead to studies in Zurich with the renowned pianist and conductor Alexander Muller, a friend of Wagner. At the Leipzig Conservatory, Eschmann studied under both Mendelssohn and Ignaz Moscheles. Returning to Switzerland in 1847, Eschmann made a name for himself as a music teacher and musician. In between his duties as a choir director, pianist and singing teacher, he turned increasingly to composition. Although he wrote some works for chorus and a Gross Concert-Overture, his main concentration was on lieder. This CD offers an almost complete selection of Eschmann's song written between 1850 and 1870. His preferred ensemble was mainly a soprano or tenor voice with piano accompaniment. All of the songs in this collection follow the conservative trends of the times, often bearing a stylistic kinship to Brahms.
