4.0 out of 5 stars Below par? 19 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Matthias Goerne has long shown himself to be a superb interpreter of lied in general and Schubert in particular, and his skill is fully evident in this CD. Yet the result doesn't delight this listener quite as much as it used to.
Goerne, is like all of us, getting older, and it is a feature of many baritones that over time their tessitura becomes closer and closer to a bass; indeed, it is arguable that Goerne now is a bass and not even a bass-baritone. His upper range is less flexible and expressive than it used to be. He exercises every bit as much control as he ever did, and his singing is as carefully considered as always, but his top range no longer delivers the goods quite so well.
Compare his earlier version of Die Schone Mullerin Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin with his more recent recording Schubert: Die Schone Mullerin - Matthias Goerne / Christoph Eschenbach (Schubert Edition Vol.3) and this becomes particularly evident.
On the other hand, the power and force of his bass register is now outstanding. Perhaps he needs to start reconsidering his approach.
The main weaknesses of this recording, however, are elsewhere. First, there is Alexander Schmalcz's accompaniment, which while competent and workman-like rarely raises itself above that level, and, secondly, the close-miking which makes Goerne's intake of breath far too audible (it's present on some of his earlier recordings, but never to this degree) and at times positively distracting.
Goerne's skill still makes this CD worth listening to, but it can't be counted as one of his best recordings. Even Homer nods.

4.0 out of 5 stars **** 1/2 Another admirable installment in Goerne's ongoing cycle 12 Jan 2011
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Every eighteen months or so we receive another installment in Matthias Goerne's ongoing Schubert cycle. One has to applaud any record label, particularly in these times, for keeping the faith in a venture that is unlikely to bring them riches. Fischer-Dieskau elevated the visibility of lieder singing, but at the same time he quashed competitors with his unending stream of recordings that covered five decades. I'd say that Goerne and Thomas Hampson have been the most successful of F-D's baritone successors. Since Hampson has omitted Schubert form his discography (with small exceptions), Goerne is free to pursue his grand dream.

There's a plus and minus to Goerne's honeyed voice. He's gorgeous in a softly lyrical song like "Nacht und Traume," which gives this album its theme of night and dreams. The tone is so sweet that it's hard to credit that the singer, now 43, isn't much younger. If anything his ability to spin a mesmerizing melodic line has only grown. But the drawback is a lack of dramatic punch and a certain sameness of tone. Goerne compensates with a pressing intensity of tone that his fans cling to, but frankly, this gets lugubrious and overbearing after a while. What keeps me from enjoying more than six songs in a row is that Goerne never smiles, and Schubert without joy isn't completely Schubert. Still, every lieder singer has detractions, and over the years I've come to appreciate Goerne more.

One mark of distinction in this cycle is the use of different pianists for each installment. In this instance Goerne appears with Alexander Schmalcz, whose chief career has been as accompanist. From what I can father, the two have been associated since at least 2004, and undoubtedly Schmalcz knows how to flow along with a singer, even though he's not the most original or varied of players. Expressive rubato is minimal, and his tone hovers around mezzo forte too much.

So, the sum is a fascinating mixture of rare and familiar songs done with great skill and authority. Whatever my quibbles about Goerne's artistry, that he is an artist is never in doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful interpretations 24 Mar 2011
By DudeTheMath - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Goerne's voice, while rich in the lower range, still shimmers effortlessly across the top notes. I have a new standard, exceeding both Terfel & Fischer-Dieskau. I look forward to collecting Goerne's other offerings from Schubert's lieder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Schubert 2 April 2013
By Barb Reader - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I discovered Schubert a few months ago, and fell in love with his music. After hearing some of the selections on this CD on the radio, I just had to have this recording.. The voice and piano are perfect. I believe it's a great addition to the library of anyone who loves great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matthias Goerne Continues his Schubert Cycle 5 April 2011
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Nacht und Träume is the latest addition to the survey of Franz Schubert's seemingly endless book of songs. Matthias Goerne, who studied with both Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, has obviously inherited the mantle of the baritone interpreter of these flawless songs by a composer who remains one of the most often performed in lieder recitals around the world. Goerne collaborates with his long time pianist partner Alexander Schmalcz and the experience of working together gives an aura of relaxed perfection of delivery.

Matthias Goerne's voice is as rich as thick cream and can move form the dark and ominous range of 'Totengräberweise' to the airy and lovely 'An Silvia". His vocal quality is beautiful across his wide range and he is able to float a pianissimo as well as display vocal fireworks. While every song in this recital is special, one aspect of how carefully and lovingly Goerne programs is to appreciate the opening of the recital with 'Nacht und Träume' and closing with the well-loved 'An die Geliebte'. This recording is so solid it seems as though we were in the concert hall rather that listening to a recording. Matthias Goerne is a communicator of the first order. Excellent! Grady Harp, April 11
