Christine Brewer Sings Schubert 25 Oct 2005
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Young and vital soprano Christine Brewer is now among the top Wagner and Strauss interpreters entering the arena of big voices on the operatic stage today. This recording, one volume (31) of the famed Hyperion Schubert Collection, finds her singing Schubert lieder, and given that this recording dates back to 1998, it is interesting to hear how her voice has developed.

Many of the sopranos who opt for careers in the operas of Wagner, Strauss, and the heavier weight Verdi/Puccini roles demonstrate less conviction when it comes to the communication required in the German lieder, especially Schubert. But here is Brewer eight years ago with all the promise of her soaring, rich voice addressing the smaller scale intimacies of Schubert and doing it quite successfully. Some of the vocal traits that seemed possibly problematic here (glottal attacks, a bit of pitch lurching) are happily not present in her current vocal estate!

This is an odd cluster of Schubert with Lieder combined with choral works (the Psalms), but given the overall context of Hyperion's venture, these all flow well. Certainly the artists perform them well - Graham Johnson is a superb accompanist - and the choral work is in keeping with the period. Not a great collection of works, but this early introduction to Christine Brewer will become a collector's item. She has a major career ahead! Grady Harp, October 05

Have no fear ! 1 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Of course we all demand a capable performance. Unfortunatly I am frequently dissapointed. Prepare yourself to be astonished. Christine Brewer delivers a powerful yet amazingly luscious & almost creamy sound. You will stand jaw-dropingly awed by this unique combination of powerful mastery & Soothing finesse. ENJOY
Where is the Magic? 1 Jun 2012
By Ben Abraham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Christine Brewer is one of our premiere Wagner and Strauss sopranos. (Her Isolde is amazing!) She is blessed with a pure, clear, powerful, soaring voice that seems almost limitless in its possibilities. But opera is a different animal from lieder.

Her performances here, in this Schubert lieder recital, lack the intimacy and flexibility that is required to convincingly sing lieder. Christine's opera skills -- where her voice slices through a large orchestra to reach an audience of thousands, and soars high to the heavens -- are in this lieder recital detrimental to the music. On this CD her voice overpowers the music. She sounds stiff and piercing. Simply put, her voice in this context sounds unpleasant.

On the other hand, the choral tracks without Ms. Brewer (tracks 9 and 10) are beautiful! And I was shocked to hear that track 10 is sung in hebrew! Yes... HEBREW! Schubert wrote hebrew songs? (Well, actually, it's a psalm but, nevertheless, it's interesting to hear.)

Over the past 5 or 6 years, I've been working my way through the Hyperion Schubert Lieder recordings. I'm toward the tail end of the set. The Hyperion Schubert are, by and large, of the highest quality. They are a real treat. Christine Brewer's entry, alas, is disappointing.
