Notes and Editorial Reviews

Musicians Jürg Dahler (viola), Gilles Vonsattel (piano), and François Benda (clarinet) journey to the outer limits of what can be sung or heard in their new GENUIN Artist Consort release – for Benda already his seventh CD in the splendid series! The disc brings together truly Romantic music by Robert Schumann and Györgi Kurtag along with the world premiere recording of Hans Ulrich Lehmann’s “without words”, a commentary on Schumann’s Marchenbilder.
