Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Although the name Michelangelo is most often associated with masterpieces such as the statue of David or the legendary ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, the great Renaissance man wrote several hundred poems, including madrigals and sonnets. On this disc we hear settings of some of these texts by Benjamin Britten, Hugo Wolf, and Dmitri Shostakovich, performed by the internationally acclaimed bass Sir John Tomlinson and the pianist David Owen Norris. The two have presented these works in concert many times, Tomlinson embodying the artist in updated form as a nineteenth-century painter in his workshop, and now the unique artistic vision of these renowned musicians can be experienced on disc. For his Suite on Verses of Michelangelo Buonarroti, Shostakovich selected eight sonnets and three other poems, all in Russian translations, covering subjects such as wisdom, love, creativity, death, and immortality. The Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo was the first song cycle that Britten composed specifically with the voice of his partner, Peter Pears, in mind. These love songs are passionate, ecstatic - almost evangelical - in tone. The Drei Gedichte von Michelangelo were among the last works Hugo Wolf composed before his descent into mental illness. They are based on poems about the joy and pain of love and youth, and about the brevity of life.
