Synopsis

Product Description
Following on his iconic Hyperion projects focused on the complete songs of Schubert and Schumann,
Graham Johnson s latest enterprise traverses the complete songs of Brahms. He is joined here on the second volume in the series by the wonderful soprano Christine Schäfer, whose contribution to the Schumann song series won a Gramophone Award. Each volume in the series takes us on a journey through Brahms s career, from youthful settings to songs of maturity. This volume includes a selection of delightful Mädchenlieder and concludes with a handful of Brahms s intimate folksong settings. Discerningly partnered by Graham Johnson, Christine Schäfer is in perfect voice. She sings with a pure, luminous tone, crystal clear diction and eloquent phrasing, making this a superb recital in its own right. As part of the wider survey of the complete songs of Brahms, it will take an essential place in any Lieder-lover s collection.
