Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the miraculous year of 1840, which Schumann began in despair, forcibly separated from Clara by her father, he composed nearly 150 lieder, including the two outstanding cycles presented here, based respectively on poems by the great Heine (the Liederkreis op.24) and by Justinus Kerner (the twelve Kernerlieder op.35).

Haunted from beginning to end by Romantic Nature, in the hands of two such outstanding artists as Matthias Goerne and Leif Ove Andsnes these two masterpieces invite us, performers and listeners alike, to share a state of transcendence, a heightened consciousness that transports us directly to the heart of lived experience itself.

REVIEW:

Where Heine can rail or
Read more sneer, Schumann, typically, dreams; and no Lieder-singer does reverie better than Matthias Goerne. A word, too, for Andsnes’s sensitive timing and shading of Schumann’s dreamy and/or quizzical postludes. If you respond to Goerne’s peculiarly intense, concentrated art, the rewards here are deep and enduring.
