Notes and Editorial Reviews

The great German dramatic soprano Anne Schwanewilms makes her debut on ONYX with a recital of lieder by Liszt and Mahler. Schwanewilms is renowned internationally for her interpretations of Strauss and Wagner. An eminent lieder singer, Anne Schwanewilms works closely with leading lieder accompanists of our time – Charles Spencer, Roger Vignoles and Malcolm Martineau – with whom she has appeared in international concert halls in Barcelona (Gran Teatro del Liceu), Strasbourg, Madrid, Amsterdam, London (Wigmore Hall) and Washington (Kennedy Center). With Roger Vignoles, she has recorded a selection of songs by Richard Strauss, which was nominated by BBC Music Magazine as Vocal Recording of the Year 2008.
