Notes and Editorial Reviews

For her third solo album, Anna Prohaska tackles the worlds of peace and war in music. Once more, she proves her talent for a dramaturgical CD concept - "Behind the Lines" draws a connection to World War I in this, the centenary year. Joined by noted pianist Eric Schneider, she has programmed songs ranging from Beethoven, by way of Schubert, Schumann and Liszt, and turn-of-the- century composers Faure, Mahler and Wolf, to the early-modern works of Weill and Eisler. For Anna Prohaska, a vocal score is a canvas, and one on which she paints and crafts every note with her distinct, colour-saturated tone.
