Notes & Reviews:

"This concert celebrated the closing night of the Hall's 90th anniversary season in 1991; and Schreier's and Schiff's recital certainly comes with a palpable sense of occasion. The Wigmore version presents the songs in exactly the original published order; and the exquisite "Taubenpost", which Schubert's publisher threw in for good measure, is absent. But this is one of the darkest, slowest 'Schwanengesangs' on disc: there is a unique menace in the final 'Gute Nacht' of 'Kriegers Ahnung'; and 'In der Ferne' gives full, long weight to those six slow pulses within the last word of each line." -BBC Music Magazine



Reviews

Schreier and Schiff: The Magical Combination
This is one of the great combinations in the interpretation of Schubert Leider, and the recording captures Schreier in great form, at a mature but vocally strong and dramatic stage of his career. This is among the more challenging of Schubert's works dramatically, and both artists show a depth of appreciation for it that can be seldom matched. Having seen the two perform the work together, one can easily see the interaction between singer and accompanist in a unique and personal way, in this most powerful work of a composer whose understanding of the end of life is unmatched
