Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Peter Cornelius thought of himself as a 'Poet-Musician' and almost all of his mature compositions were vocal. His early attachment to the New German school of Liszt and Wagner was strong but his songs, almost half of which were written in Weimar, retain a very personal quality. A gifted poet, he set a number of his own lyrics. With their colorful piano accompaniments, his songs possess economy, atmosphere and show an interest in cyclical writing. Whether mournful or, in the Rhenish Songs , exuberantly outgoing, they reveal his imaginative command of the medium. This is the first volume of Cornelius' complete Lieder.

The Guardian, 15th August 2013
The most striking of the six sets here is Cornelius's Op 3, Trauer und Trost...It's sung with fierce concentration by the tenor Markus SchSfer, but both the soprano Christina Landshamer and the baritone Mathias Hausmann are very fine too.
