Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following the success of her previous disc with TwoPianists entitled Shakespeare Inspired, Michelle Breedt presents a beautiful collection of songs by Schubert in a compilation called Jahreszeiten (Seasons). The collection opens with the famous An die Natur, which becomes the central theme of The Seasons, for Schubert represents the Seasons through his observations of nature. And indeed nature is superbly represented through some of the composer’s most hidden gems, including the mammoth Viola. Michelle Breedt has found the perfect partner in Nina Schumann, founding member of TwoPianists, and an accompanist of note.
