Erich Wolfgang Korngold is most famous for his Hollywood film scores and his opera Die Tote Stadt. He also composed 40-plus songs, and this CD presents 36 of them. In fact, several of these songs appear in some Warner Bros. films, either in their form here, or as melodies he adapted. Five songs (opus 38) are dedicated to soprano Maria Jeritza and are set to English texts; they are catchy and easygoing enough to be called "popular." (One of them has words by Howard Koch, a contributing writer for the screenplay of Casablanca. On the other hand, we get "Drei Lieder op. 18," which are far more "modern." Indeed, there are moments of Alban Berg in them, although they never stray quite that far from tonality. What one takes away from this 76-minute recital disc is the variety Korngold was capable of and the short time he needs (the longest song is just four minutes) to set a mood and tell a story. Baritone Dietrich Henschel copes with the huge palette Korngold presents; he sings with great expression and can "simplify" his tone as the music demands. He's most comfortable in the middle of his range, but his frequent moves up to G and A flat are exciting as well. Helmut Deutsch is a fine pianist-partner. There's a lot to digest here; these aren't all to be played at once. But section by section, they are lovely and interesting. --Robert Levine

It's heartening to the Korngold fan to see that his songs are appearing more frequently. Anne Sofie von Otter and Angelika Kirchschlager, to name only two others, have done their part to make the songs of Korngold more familiar to the classical music lover and several of the songs on this disc will be familiar to those who already have their discs. It's interesting to hear and compare this repertoire sung by a baritone when one is used to hearing female singers perform it and the difference is both fascinating and pleasant. As an Anne Sofie von Otter fan I will always return to her recordings most frequently but that is no slight to Henschel, merely a preference. This disc deserves high praise both for the quality of the performances and for presenting even more of Korngold's magnificent music to the public. The only oddity is in Op. 38 which for some reason is performed in English when the original texts are German. The singing is still great but if you're used to the German the English may be a bit off-putting.

Henschel's range of expression and the sensuous tone of his voice make this a remarkable CD. The recording is virtually transparent. Of the 15 or so lieder CDs I've bought recently, this is my favorite. Very highly recommeded.
