Notes and Editorial Reviews

An original arrangement by Carl Herring of Schumann's masterpiece, here recorded on the JCL label for the first time for Guitar and Tenor. Carl Herring and Kevin Kyle met whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London and collaborate regularly as a duo performing classical and modern repertoire. This particular arrangement of Dichterliebe has been a work in progress ever since Carl and Kevin met and JCL Records are delighted to have facilitated this first of many recordings of the duo. The recording is complemented at the end by Carl performing Five Schubert Songs arranged by Johann Kasper Mertz. "Herring's arrangement of Dichterliebe for voice and guitar gives a whole new life to the work as an intimate, direct communication Read more with the listener rather than a performance." Classical Music Magazine "Tenor and guitarist bring a whole new dimension to Schumann's Heine cycle...not only to the credit of guitarist Carl Herring, whose skilful arrangements - played equally skillfully - these are, that so much of this also works; Kevin Kyle, with his light, unaffected tenor, brings a youthful earnestness to Heine's poems that, in combination with the sound of plucked strings, adds a whole new, almost folk-like, dimension to this most beloved of song-cycles" Gramophone Magazine Read less
