Notes and Editorial Reviews

Licht und Liebe features Schubert's vocal duets, trios and quartets - works that reveal the full variety of his creative impulses. Composed for the famous ‘Schubertiads' - the composer's intimate gatherings of friends - they were sometimes written in dialogue and sometimes in unison; they were at times close to opera, or to Singspiel scenes or choral music. These delightful vocal ensembles, performed here by Marlis Petersen, Anke Vondung, Werner Güra and Konrad Jarnot, display a rare combination of skill, taste and compositional freedom that offers a special and immediate appeal for today's listener.
