4.0 out of 5 stars Werner Gura at his best 7 May 2008
By Wellington Pavior - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have many, many lieder CDs and many of both this repertoire and many of Gura, and this would go down as one of my favorites.

Werner Gura is a tenor who should be better know then he is. His voice is creamy and full of color, and incredibly easy to listen to. He never goes over board in his interpretations which can be one of the downfalls of a singer such as Ian Bostridge. In this repertoire Gura shines. He is at his best (in my opinion) in both Verborgenhiet and Der Tambour.

Jan Schultsz is also very good and negotiates the sometime quite tricky piano part in these wonderful songs.

I have always been impartial to the lied of Hugo Wolf, but after tis CD (and the inspired release of the Eichendorff lieder on Hyperion with Fink, Genz and Vignoles)I have been converted.

The only downside to this CD is a impersonal feeling in the recording process. It is a little dry and two dimensional... not from want of trying from the performers.

This is a great recording of some of Wolf's greatest and most popular lieder. But also keep and eye out for the Hyperion Eichendorff lieder CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light tenor voice is unusual in Wolf, but Guera's artistry wins out 1 Oct 2013
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Note: I attached this review to the latest bargain reissue of the original 2005 release. It now comes in a flimsy cardboard sleeve without texts, so buyer beware. amazon has also placed the review with the more expensive original Cd, presumably with texts - the cover shows Guera wearing a muffler.

It's always fascinating to see how a singer overcomes natural drawbacks in the voice. Werner Guera has such a light tenor that he wouldn't seem well suited to Hugo Wolf's expressive intensity. In fact, I'd have to go back decades, to Hughes Cuenod, to remember a voice like this seriously attempting to sing Lieder. But Guera has all the expressive technique needed to sing Schubert's equally demanding Schwanengesang, which has almost exclusively been the province of lower voices, so I came to this CD of Morike-Lieder with high hopes.

And a combination of art and compatibility wins out. Guera is naturally suited to the lighter songs like Die Gartner, which is carefree and buoyant; he can encompass the long crescendo that brings Er Ist's to a joyous conclusion; even the storminess of Begegnung comes of well once the pianist, Jan Schultsz, takes care to scale it down. It was also canny to bring the Morike collection in the first place, since its 53 songs afford a range of expression that isn't like the suffering and angst of, say, the Spanish songbook. Guera also knows that he can't play it safe, so in a powerful song like Der Tambour (so close in mood to one of Mahler's soldier songs in Des Knaben Wunderhorn), the singer unleashes the full force of his voice. He triumphs in the spooky Der Feuerreiter, rising to a terrifying wail where stronger voices employ sheer power.

Ian Bostridge has a bigger international career than Guera, equipped with a voice similar in timbre and probably louder, but I much prefer Guera's artistry, which doesn't veer into over-emphasis, and the sound of his voice is lovely, as opposed to the nasal, reedy twang of Bostridge's. One drawback to the present CD is the resonant ambience of the hall - was this an attempt to make Guera's sound appear bigger? - which gives the piano too much echo. Musically, I usually admire Schultsz when he partners with Guera, but his plai-spoken playing misses a good deal of the subtle half-lights in Wolf's accompaniments.

I anticipated writing about the inability of a lyric tenor reaching deeply enough into wolf's emotional shadows, but by the end Guera convinced me that artistry, intelligence, and a beautiful voice can compensate for a lack of visceral power. Once I adjusted, this CD turned out to be one of Guera's best. He communicates the twin poles of Wolf's soul joy and soul struggle.
