Product Description

CD Description

Following her album of Strauss songs with orchestra, soprano Diana Damrau - described by France's Classica as "first and foremost a liedersängerin" and by The Times as "gifted in projecting drama and emotion ... a peach of a singer"- turns to songs by Liszt in the company of distinguished pianist Helmut Deutsch.

Reviewing her Strauss recital, Classica went on to praise Damrau's "sensitivity to words and capacity to sculpt the vocal line and adjust the intensity of the breath," her "timbre of substance and constant desire to bring the text alive", observing that "Damrau projects her text and finds a suitable colour behind each syllable". Diapason, meanwhile, awarded the CD a Diapason d'Or and observed that: "More songs are waiting for a visit from this angel."

In choosing to visit Liszt's songs, the German soprano is venturing into repertoire that, perhaps surprisingly, remains for the most part outside the mainstream of recital programming. Over a period of 45 years Liszt wrote 70 or so songs, making two or more versions of over a third of them. Damrau's collection includes his most frequently heard songs, written to German and Italian texts by, among others, Goethe, Heine and Petrarch. They include the three demanding and exalted Sonetti del Petrarca, the haunting fairytale ‘Die Loreley', the evocative ‘Die drei Zigeuner' (which reminds us of Liszt's Hungarian blood), and the lyrical, wistful ‘O lieb, so lang du lieben kannst', which was to become a ‘greatest hit' for the composer in its adaptation for solo piano - Liebestraum No 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful...! 27 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
Great job! Diana Damrau, Helmut Deutsch, Liszt and great German poets, are guarantee of a fantastic evening. I do not know if it will be the "best of the best" "Lieder" but was certainly maximum pleasure ... Suitable for those who enjoy poetry and want to try out the "lied". Great sound and remarkable booklet. Damrau's voice sounds crystalline, Helmut Deutsche brilliant! ... Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars minus - the German songs are great. 6 Jan 2012
By A. F. S. Mui - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Liszt's musical settings for German poems form the main bulk of Damrau's latest vocal album, and she gives a splashing performance here.
Damrau's best performances are those light and lyrical pieces that demands multi-tonal shadings. In those places she paints with a fully magical tonal brush, and her enunciations are pearly and crystalline in turns.
Basically a lirico coloratura leggiero soprano, Damrau sung numerous dramatic coloratura roles on stage in her early years, with a resultant damage to her uppermost register.
Luckily, most of the damage has been 'repaired' since the birth of her Alexander. In her recent releases, we hear a full-voiced soprano, though the uppermost register has somewhat receded.
There are two or three tracks here that are not nearly as successful as the rest, and by and large they are those Italian pieces (Benedicto sia'l giorno; pace non trovo, I vidi in terra angelici costumi). The contrasts are some times a trifle harsh to the ear.
Otherwise, a wonderful compilation of Liszt songs, with the veteran Deutsch at the piano giving full Lisztian pianistic support.

Masterful performance and excellent recording of these songs writen by Liszt that are not part of usual repertoire. Highly recommended, and I am not a lover of Liszt music!
