5.0 out of 5 stars Werner Gura is wonderful in this repertory, 16 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Schubert - Die schöne Müllerin (Audio CD)
This is a very fine interpretation indeed. It receives 3 "gongs" in my edition of the Gramophone Good CD Guide (its highest accolade)and I would agree with its assessment. Its review talks of Jan Schultz's piano interpretation being "contraversial" but I am not enough of an expert to know why they said that. The sixth song is very beautifully done but the whole cycle hangs together coherently and the fact that Werner Gura is a German speaker gives it a naturalness. I was recently lucky enough to hear Gura at a concert and he is a master in this field. His more recent "Wintereisse" has the pianist Christoph Berners playing on it (he is an exceptionally sensitive player - he was playing for Werner Gura at the concert)so I look forward to hearing that at some stage. It is lovely to hear it done by a tenor with such a beautiful voice because I have been used to hearing DFD - this voice register sounds so much more youthful (surely appropriate) and with Gura...Incidentally, the artwork is a bit different from that shown but I prefer it. Good notes but no texts and translations. Recommend Richard Wigmore's Schubert song texts for those.
