After a decade at the top rank of English baritones, Maltman will turn forty this year, a good time to record Schubert's Die Schone Mullerin -- a singer's voice is still capable of sounding youthful while there is enough experience to offer a notable interpretation. I had heard concert versions that Matlman toured with pianist Julius Drake, but for this live recording at London's famous Wigmore Hall last December, the singer chose a different accompanist, Graham Johnson. There's a natural vivacity in Maltman's approach that is immediately appealing, and he can lighten his voice to take advantage of its easy upper reach, which is almost tenorish.

Since the piano part is so important, let me admit right off that I do not much favor Johnson's playing. It is professional and accomplished but never really imaginative, and in passages where the composer repeats the same simple figures over and over -- a common practice in this cycle -- Johnson goes on automatic pilot. As a result there's a mismatch between Matlman's spontaneous feeling for the songs and his prosaic accompanist. Too often I felt that Matlman was pulling the cart and Johnson dragging it, although this isn't a major obstacle. The important thing is whether a singer can draw us in and, if possible, tell a compelling dramatic story. Happily, Maltman is quite compelling on both fronts.

After a somewhat abrupt start that finds both pianist and singer a bit off kilter, Maltman finds his groove, and by the third or fourth song he grabs the listener with an impetuous pace that is exciting. We want our young heartbroken hero to draw tears, and Maltman's plaintive vulnerability does that without seeming lachrymose. He's also tenderly lyrical, and at such moments the voice is beautiful, emotionally and tonally.

Christopher Maltman first grabbed attention with his recording of Schumann's DICHTERLIEBE about 10 years ago. In tackling Schubert's beloved SCHONE MULLERIN, he is on ground that is so familiar to listeners that one might wonder if this singer has anything new to offer. The answer is a decided "Yes!" The recording is live, and the excitement of a concert pervades the music. Maltman sings very well indeed, but he also enters into the optimism and (later) heartbreak and despair of the young miller. I found this recording impossible to put aside until the final song. Among baritone versions of this wonderful cycle, I would rank Maltman right up there with Fischer-Dieskau's immortal recordings, although the voices and the interpretations are entirely different. Bravo!
