Editorial Reviews

Volume 18 in Hyperion's complete Schubert song series features tenor Peter Schreier, who presents a lovely program rich in Romantic imagery. The highlight of this disc is the mini song cycle On the Wild Paths to poems by Ernst Schulze. These are typically full of "nature" themes: stars, waves, the forest, the seasons--that sort of thing, and it's just amazing how Schubert comes up with a totally apt accompaniment for each poem. Heavy German, to be sure, but great music too. --David Hurwitz

By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 21, 2004
Format: Audio CD
This CD is volume 18 of the monumental recording of the complete Schubert songs on the Hyperion label. The performers are tenor Peter Schreier and pianist Graham Johnson. Johnson served as the artistic director of the entire project. He accompanies on each disk and wrote the extensive and scholarly liner notes for each volume. Peter Schreier sings in a light, lyrical tenor, which is yet capable of great expression and feeling. He is at the top of his form in this outstanding recording. The Hyperion collection offers an unparallelled oppotunity to hear a variety of the great singers of our day performing the Schubert songs.

There are 22 songs on this CD, almost all of which are in Schubert's simplest song style called strophic. Strophic songs are in a familiar stanza (similar to a church hymn) form in which the same music is used to set each verse. The form is common, but in lengthy songs it runs the risk of monotony.

Johnson's detailed liner-notes (almost book-length) begin with an introduction titled "Schubert and the Strophic Song" in which he traces the antecedents of Schubert's song forms in earlier composers and illustrates the many variations and subtleties Scubert brought to his compositions. Johnson sees many of the songs on this disk as pointing to the way to Schubert's final masterpieces, the song-cycles Die Schone Mullerin and Winterreise, both of which are predominantly strophic in form. He also points out the many beauties of these songs themselves. The liner notes also include extensive commentary, musical analysis, and biographical information on each of the songs, including text and translation. Johnson is a passionate and informed guide indeed to the Schubert lieder.

The songs on this CD fall into two basic groups.

There aren't many solo recitals by Peter Schreier available to listeners in my part of the world. I have to confess that apart from his many many recordings in operas, oratorios, choral pieces, this album is the only solo album by him that I own.
For too many years Peter Schreier's singing has been eclipsed by his illustrious predecessor Fritz Wunderlich, who passed away tragically early in 1966. Few would like to acknowledge that this low-key but prolific Peter Schreier has since then been a most worthy successor in the classical music world as a lyrical tenor singing a wide range of repertoire, from Bach to Wagner, from cantatas and oratorios to romantic German operas, ALL with great success.
How to measure Mr Schreier's singing? If one insists that Peter Schreier does not own a timbre as beautiful as Wunderlich, one would still be forced to admit that Mr Schreier sings with more affectation than Mr Wunderlich. Such quality would justly compensate any other slight inadequacies, if any.
Listening to this album inevitably makes me compare Wunderlich's other solo albums of Schubert, and the foregoing feeling inevitably emerges.
Had Wunderlich been given more time, no doubt, he would have made a world of difference.
As it is, Peter Schreier has proven to be more than able to uphold the banner of great Germanic lyrical tenors since Wunderlich's premature demise, and this album is a must for his followers.
