Notes and Editorial Reviews

In almost no time at all, Konrad Jarnot has made a name for himself as one of the foremost lied interpreters of the younger generation. His first CDs featured unusual contrasts of material as well as seldom-heard repertoire. In his most recent recordings, he shows that he can also bring essential impulses to the major standard repertoire. After “Die Schöne Müllerin”, Jarnot now sings Schubert’s “Winterreise”, in which his strengths are especially prominent: absolute clarity of text hand-in-hand with an interpretation that develops from the sound itself. This, in turn, is characterized by breathtaking control throughout the entire dynamic spectrum.
