ANDRE SCHUEN – SCHWANENGESANG
Catalogue No.: 4863313
Release Date: 18 Nov 2022
After receiving huge praise for his debut album on Deutsche Grammophon (Sunday Times Album of the Week, Editor’s Choice Gramophone Magazine) Baritone Andrè Schuen continues his Schubert journey.
Schubert’s enigmatic final collection of songs, Schwanengesang, is the subject of baritone Andrè Schuen and his longstanding accompanist Daniel Heide’s second release for Deutsche Grammophon. Baritone Andrè Schuen calls Schwanengesang “my greatest love among the Schubert lieder. Especially the Heine settings; they move me the most!” His admiration for the cycle dates back to a time before he had even become a professional singer: “It’s one of the first lied compositions I got to know. I remember a recording with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau that I played over and over again.”
Schwanengesang compiles lieder on texts by Ludwig Rellstab, Henirich Heine and Johann Gabriel Seidl, put together after Schubert’s untimely early death. The album follows the pair’s acclaimed interpretation of Die schöne Müllerin.
