Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Diversity is the theme of this recording of songs by Franz Liszt - a composer who wrote songs in six languages. The songs are admirably presented by the acclaimed mezzo-soprano Elisabeth Kulman and her collaborator, pianist Eduard Kutrowatz.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Kulman is a highly expressive singer with gleaming top notes and rich chocolate low tones. With her supple voice and excellent enunciation she imparts beautiful phrasing and nuancing to each song. Kutrowatz offers just as fine collaboration; his managing of both the delicacy and challenging drama of 'Die Drei Zigeuner' along with Kulman's sensuous reading is a high point of the program.

If you don't know Liszt's songs, here is an excellent introduction to them; if you know them you will find this a good sampling. Brief notes by the performers about each song are printed adjacent to the texts with translations in English, French, and German.
