“A connoisseur’s artist” (Penguin Guide) sings the essential Schumann songs
Robert Schumann‘s intenslively expressive lieder signaled the flowering of high romanticism in German music. The song cycles and solo songs presage the music of Wagner, Mahler, and even French romantic vocal music of the late 19th century. Dame Felicity Lott, one of Britain’s most celebrated sopranos, delivers twenty-seven flawless Schumann classics accompanied by accomplished pianist Graham Johnson.
