Product description

Product Description

The first volume in a major new recording series across which a host of world-renowned singers draw listeners, decade by decade, through a century of song, from 1810 to 1910. Each volume features a perfectly planned, varied programme performed by household names, whilst the series overall creates a comprehensive survey of song right through the nineteenth century an invaluable teaching asset, as well as a joy for listeners.

The opening volume, 1810-1820, includes songs from Austria, Bohemia, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, by Franz Schubert, Fernando Sor, Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Fabry- Garat, Sophie Gail, Václav Tomáek, Giovanni Battista Viotti, and Carl Maria von Weber.

Singers in this first volume include the distinguished Canadian tenor Michael Schade, sopranos Lorna Anderson and Sylvia Schwartz, mezzo Dame Ann Murray and bass Florian Boesch, accompanied by the series creator, pianist Malcolm Martineau.

Singers for volumes 2 & 3 (released at 4-monthly intervals) include Sarah Connolly, John Mark Ainsley, Christina Gansch, Anush Hovhannisyan, Christopher Maltman and Angelika Kirchschlager, with further stars of today and of the future appearing in future volumes. Extensive presentation includes 72 page booklet with authoritative liner note in three languages by renowned song expert and series consultant Prof Susan Youens, with full texts and translations, together with session photographs.

Review

Superb booklet note ... enterprising survey of European music, decade by decade ... Schade is persuasive ... the diamond-bright soprano Sylvia Schwartz ... welcome cameos by Ann Murray and Florian Boesch ... Malcolm Martineau's luminous touch and rhythmic point are priceless assets throughout. In short an absorbing and entertaining chapter in the history of song. --Gramophone
