Notes and Editorial Reviews

Baritone Christian Gerhaher is currently setting new standards as a Lied interpreter, both on the operatic and concert stage. This release follows two choral-symphonic recordings on BR-Klassik. This release contains works recorded during Gerhaher’s time with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks as Artist in Residence. The pieces investigate the contrast between the Kunstlied (art song) and Volkslied (folk song). Containing works by Britten, Beethoven, and Haydn, the repertoire in this program is close to Christian Gerhaher’s heart. Other artists on this recording include cellist Sebastian Klinger, violinist Anton Barachovsky, and pianist Gerold Huber.
