Performers Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The composer Hanns Eisler's life was one long exile, set against the backdrop of the artistic, technical and political revolutions of the 20th century. His journey spanned 1920s Vienna and the Berlin of the Weimar Republic to emigration to the USA, then back to Vienna after the defeat of Nazism and ultimately spending his final years in East Berlin. Distance, irony, and melancholy are the aesthetic corollaries that characterize the lieder presented here by baritone Matthias Goerne, their atmosphere often evoking the despair of those dark times. Also included is Eisler's early Piano Sonata, played here by Thomas Larcher, a work which brought the young composer an admiration that has never dimmed since.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Eisler's final work, with which this set curiously opens, was Ernste Gesänge, for baritone and strings (1962). They are striking and extremely well sung by Mr Goerne, and they are deserving of repertoire status. The considerably earlier Songs with Piano (1942) were written in exile as the war raged. This is a revelatory production, brilliantly performed. Students and devotees of the German lieder should not miss this, and pianists would do well to hear the sonata.
