Editorial Reviews

Review

"It took courage beyond reckoning for Schubert to set Wilhelm Muller's poetry to music, because he saw in it his own possible fate, one of unimaginable bleakness. A great work assumes even greater power when one realizes what it must have meant to its creator." - Susan Youens, from the introductory essay

Format: Hardcover
I just picked up this CD, and though I guess originally it came as a package with the book, I can only speak of the CD. It has instantly moved into position as one of my favorite Winterreise. Rowe's voice is strong, lilting and unpretentious. Always on pitch, with blessedly no portentous "lieder-grumble" and not a trace of affectation, but with plenty of musical drama. The pianist Fischer is quite forceful but paradoxically a little genteel in spots. But the approach slyly works somehow in a way that fits an updated Biedermeier masterpiece, with the edges smoothed elegantly, but not too much. It is all really beautiful, simply put. And the recorded sound is outstanding! The voice comes through with no echo, glare or boominess and piano sounds really gorgeous, never rumbly even in very loud passages. What a treat this is. I will be interested to check out the accompanying book some day if I see it. This is why I keep buying Cds.

The book arrived on time and was in good condition but the back cover was soiled. It is annoying because this book is intended as a gift
