Product Description

CD Description

Third and final recording in renowned British tenor James Gilchrists series of Schubert song recitals for Orchid Classics, following on from Die schöne Müllerin (ORC100006) and Schwanengesang (ORC100013). Both earlier releases have been received with much critical acclaim, with Andrew Mellor in BBC Music referring to Gilchrists treasure-trove of a voice .

Review

he is now unsurpassed amongst lyric tenors in sweetness and technical security, and for his musical intelligence --The Independent

It is a profoundly considered reading,considered enough for some songs to be as penetrating as in almost any performance I have heard...I shall certainly treasure this disc as one of the indispensable readings,and also one of the best balanced between the two partners. Performance ****** Recording ****** RECORDING OF THE MONTH --BBC Music Magazine,Christmas'11

Format: Audio CD
Lieder is enjoying something of a silver era. Although many still hold dear exponents such as Wunderlich and Fischer-Dieskau, I am thrilled to call the likes of Goerne, Gerhaher and Padmore 'my' Lieder singers. And I would certainly add James Gilchrist to the other two. His new recording of Winterreise shows off a wonderfully elastic voice. Bruised and beaten by the world, Gilchrist delivers Schubert's songs as if in a trance. It makes for a beautifully otherworldly performance.

The journey to that half-conscious state is well paced, though the opening songs set a very different tone. Anna Tilbrook's accompaniment forces the traveller onwards, though she makes the curious choice of easing into the major key modulation in 'Gute Nacht'. Her acute and rhetorical performance pays dividends in the opening half of the story, with a beguiling hesitancy in 'Wasserflut'. Occasionally, her reading can overplay its hand and 'Frühlingstraum' is delivered at an eccentrically slow pace.

Gilchrist, seemingly regardless, maintains his abject mood. There's a haunting breathy quality to 'Der Blumen im Winter sah?', which he floats without effort. And hat same tortured hush continues into 'Letze Hoffnung', prefiguring the Second Viennese School in its aphoristic splashes. While Tilbrook is too insistent, lacking the requisite air and space, Gilchrist enters another realm entirely for the final songs.

Among recent interpretations, this recording cannot quite touch Padmore and Paul Lewis's all-encompassing tragedy or Gerhaher with Gerold Huber. And with Florian Boesch's Winterreise also out this month, Gilchrist's current competition becomes yet tougher.

James Gilchrist is our favourite tenor. We've heard him sing this in concert. The recording is superb and we highly recommend it.
