I heard this man on the radio singing 'An Die Musik' and had to stop the car to listen. He is extraordinary. Does it take an Englishman to sing Schubert with more sublimlity that any vocalist you have ever heard before? Probably! This rtecording will be a revelation to you, too. In fact, prior to Ian Bostridge, Schubert lieder carried scant interest for me: they often seemed to be somehow fossilised remnants, oversentimentalised, twee and belonging to an antique era. However Bostridge brings a sense of freshness and at an times achingly beautiful lyricism to these songs that reinvents them. It is the way he can deliver a turn of phrase with just the right nuance that reveals the underlying psychological dynamism Schubrt himself probably had in mind when composing the music to accompany the lyrics. Savour the jauntiness of An Sylvia, which makes other performers sound leaden. Or enter into the mysterious profundity of 'Litany for All Souls' Day', which is unbearably rapt and moving.

These are some of the best known songs by the greatest songwriter of all time, and Bostridge brings his usual beautiful tone and phrasing to each one of them. For a new listener to classical songs wanting an overview of Schubert's 500 or more "lieder" (famous romantic poems set to original music), Bostridge's warm phrasing, his soft but accurate German, and the fine playing of accompanist Julius Drake, will make this recital perfect.
At this level of talent and artistry, it is almost inexcusable to indulge in nitpicking, but listeners who are already familiar with recitals by the German masters may find some of these tenor interpretations just too lyrical. Take the two grim Gothic fantasies as the clearest example: "Der Zwerg" depicts a beautiful young queen being slowly strangled and dumped into the sea by a twisted and deformed court jester who has been driven mad by jealousy for her affections. "Erlkonig" tells of a man racing through the forest on horseback unaware that the soul of the young son in his arms is being stolen away by the phantom Forest King. These are hideous images, and I am not completely convinced that Bostridge (for all his staggering talent and discipline) has yet developed the subtle dramatic judgement that they demand - the great Fischer-Dieskau has confirmed that in this regard the lied is infinitely more demanding than opera.
Thus in Der Zwerg, the sustained beauty of Bostridge's singing gives us few cues that we are listening to anything radically different from the ruminations on love, art, nature and loss that make up the bulk of the album.

"A-men" to John Little for complaining about the lack of a 6-star rating. This is a CD of the best songs ever written for anybody by anybody, ever, sung by the best interpreter of the best songs ever written for anybody by anybody, ever.

Incredibly beautifully, carefully, and thoughtfully performed - I take my hat off to you, Mr. Bostridge.

There are those people who simply do not like Bostridge's voice and/or his approach to Lieder but don't include me among them! He has obviously given a great deal of thought to both the music and words and despite what J C Bailey has said I do not find them short of characterisation at all. Julius Drake is all that an accompanist should be, although "accompanist" is really the wrong word: it implies a subservient role, and the pianist in Schubert Lieder is - or should be - an equal partner with the singer (as Drake is here).

This CD can be thoroughly recommended to both the long-standing Schubert aficionado and someone coming to his lieder for the first time. For the latter: welcome to a wonderful new world of musical experience! You will never regret entering into it
