Notes and Editorial Reviews

Country walks, farewells, travelling: Franz Schubert was one of the first composers to highlight these typical Romantic-era motifs in his songs. The great Lieder interpreter Christoph Pre?gardien has assembled songs on these subjects to create a concept album, and the power of his performances makes the poetic and musical dimensions of these works unusually vivid. Showcasing some of Schubert’s most famous works, including his settings of Goethe’s poems Der Erlko?nig and Wanderers Nachtlied, this collection of Lieder as part of EMI Classic’s Red Line series is sure to delight fans of the composer.
