Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reflections of the soul, fruits of pleasure, places of longing: we find all of these when we listen to Eva Resch’s new GENUIN release. Following the two productions Being Beauteous and Insights, both nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award, Eva Resch and pianist Eric Schneider devote themselves to songs that offer remarkable contrasts to the violent, even disastrous times when they were written. The program features cycles by Ullmann, Schoenberg, Webern, and Schreker. Eva Resch’s full-bodied and supple voice and Eric Schneider’s precise piano playing do complete justice to this shimmering, virtuoso and at the same time almost sensual and drunken literature. Enthusiastically recommended repertoire from a forgotten era! Reflections of the soul, fruits of pleasure, places of longing: we find all of these when we listen to Eva Resch’s new GENUIN release.
