Notes and Editorial Reviews

***** (out of 5)
There are so many ways of interpreting this, Schubert's greatest work, that it would be silly to say this was the most impressive… but this one, wonderfully recorded and always beautiful despite its violence, is among the great accounts.

– BBC Music Magazine

-----

Matthias Goerne’s highly acclaimed series of Schubert lieder recordings concludes with a powerful account of Winterreise. The mood here is tense, urgent, even harrowing. This winter landscape expects no spring to come. In the intimate atmosphere of this recording, more than in concert, Goerne’s path to oblivion finds its echo in our innermost selves. Pianist Christoph Eschenbach provides superb accompaniment.
