Notes and Editorial Reviews

James Gilchrist's latest recording for Linn encompasses three of the greatest examples of the song cycle genre. Moving away from English song into the core Germanic Lieder repertoire, James's expressive tenor voice is ideally suited to showcase the emotional nuances of Schumann's vocal writing. Liederkreis shows Schumann at his most lyrical and deeply romantic; incredibly Op. 24 was his first published vocal composition. Dichterliebe, Schumann's best-known song cycle, is regarded as one of the finest in the German language, notable for its perfect pairing of Heinrich Heine's poetry with Schumann's music.
