Crumb/Purcell - Apparition - Schäfer, Christine (soprano)

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
• The brand new CD from the outstanding partnership of Christine Schäfer and Eric Schneider focuses on two song composers in the English language – the great 17th century master Henry Purcell, and the contemporary American George Crumb (b1929). Purcell’s songs are well-known (especially Dido’s Lament) but this is only the second recording of the Crumb – Apparition in particular is unusual for its use of a prepared piano and wordless vocalises, but is highly approachable music nonetheless.

• Follow-up to their highly individual and successful recording of Winterreise (ONYX4010).

• Schäfer and Schneider have juxtaposed these composers many times in recital. Though 300 years separate them, she finds they have much in common. Rather than a traditional ‘CD’ order for the songs ie Purcell, then Crumb, the songs are interspersed so that a story emerges. It begins with music – ‘Music for a while’ and as the ‘food of love’. Then comes a wedding, a love song and then we move towards jealousy, abandonment and death. Apparition (after poems by Walt Whitman written following the assassination of President Lincoln) presents a vision of death’s beauty. Short spoken lines from Shakespeare’s sonnets connect the songs perfectly
