Editorial Reviews

This recording of Winterreise is the first of its kind, featuring a tenor voice sung in Schubert's original key. It includes the last recordings that Michael Raucheisen was able to make at the Reichsrundfunk in Berlin for his large-scale project Lied der Welt.

Format: Audio CD
There are many reasons for the lover of Schubert Lieder to buy this disc: reasons historical, aesthetic and musicological.

First, it was recorded in the end-days of Hitler's Germany, while Michael Raucheisen, the excellent pianist here, doggedly pursued his project of recording as many Lieder as he could with artists such as Patzak and Anders who had survived the war and were still able to get to Berlin. Germany was in ruins, as the cover picture of the bombed Reichstag graphically depicts, the Russians were poised to capture the city and brutally subdue its population through a policy of mass rape and Hitler's ambitions would end in a bunker only a month or so after these recordings were completed. Yet here are two superlative Schubertians making music as if to reassert the true place and meaning of German culture before it was hi-jacked.

Secondly, in addition to Raucheisen's sensitive accompaniment, we have here an invaluable souvenir of the artistry of a great German tenor who, like Fritz Wunderlich, would die all too young - not falling down the stairs but in a road accident nine years later in 1954 when he was only 46 years old.

Thirdly, we have the chance to hear "Winterreise" sung in its original tenor version, mostly in the keys Schubert stipulated, rather than the more usual transpositions to accommodate the tessitura of a bass-baritone.

Finally, the interpretation itself is artistically outstanding, Anders deploying his virile tenor across a wide range of moods, tones, dynamics and colours, expertly supported by his pianist.
