Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Tony Arnold and guitarist Daniel Lippel, both members of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), take a pause from new music to delve into the intimate world of Franz Schubert's lieder. These transcriptions, for solo guitar and soprano and guitar, are based on historical transcriptions made by Schubert's contemporary Johann Kaspar Mertz (for solo guitar) and published by Schubert's publishers (for voice and guitar). Mr. Lippel performs these works on a period reproduction of a 19th Century Stauffer guitar made by German luthier Bernhard Kresse. The selected songs are culled together into a "song cycle" tracing a journey from alienation to despair to renewal. Ms. Arnold and Mr. Lippel lend their insightful interpretive approaches to this canonic repertoire, shedding new light on twelve of Schubert's most beautiful songs.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The program alternates the solo transcriptions with the vocal ones. The Lieder are arranged as a kind of song cycle divided into four sections: "Separation", "Independence", "Darkness", and "Renewal". The performances are worthy ones. Soprano Arnold is bright of voice. Guitarist Lippel stands in well for the more dulcet forte-piano, also a preference of mine. The German texts with English translations are included.
