Product Description

Product Description

The Wigmore Hall debut of young Bavarian soprano Christiane Karg in July 2012 proved a glistening highlight of the summer s song recital series. A regular guest at the world s leading opera houses, singing roles from Musetta (La bohème) to Poppea (L incoronazione di Poppea), she is also renowned throughout the world for her enchanting performances on the concert platform. Her recital featured two themes to link the programme: botanical in the first half, nocturnal in the second. Exploring celebrated jewels of the art song repertoire alongside lesser-known, but equally charming, discoveries, the programme moves from rarely heard floral songs from Strauss s teens, through dreamy settings by Fauré, Debussy and Poulenc, mysterious and nocturnal Lieder of Wolf to Berg s 'Sieben frühe Lieder'.

Review

Perf (5/5) ***** Rec (4/5) **** 'Karg and Malcolm have built a remarkably effective programme... there are some rarely heard gems too... On the evidence of this recital Karg also has a natural ease with tempo, underpinned, of course by Martineau as the ever-perfect foil at the piano... the current nature of her voice which is fresh and clear. She is certainly not lacking in honeyed warmth in the Strauss songs, yet brings darker hues in a wonderfully dreamy account of Berg s Sieben fruhen Lieder... a sublime conclusion to a thoroughly enjoyable recital.' --Christopher Dingle, BBC Music Magazine January 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars "Fauri"? Any albums here by "Beyonci"? 14 April 2014
By isabelle a - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so the kid webmasters here are illiterate.

This cd is by itself quite elegant. Her last recital album, "Amoretti" contained a lot of arias where she just let it rip. This is a more subdued affair, but excellent. Karg can do "refined" and she can do "can belto." This is the refined side. Do not hesitate.
5.0 out of 5 stars Simple lovely 9 Mar 2014
By cdgray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is the result of a live performance, and it is delivered with style and panache. Her's is a light lyric voice which is well-produced. The chosen literature is compelling - the Berg songs are especially interesting. One is able to note that the live audience is quite taken with her work. The accompaniment supplied by Malcolm Martineau is impeccable and up to his usual high standard.
