Schubert: The Complete Matthias Goerne Lieder Edition
Harmonia Mundi, Matthias Goerne, CD, Franz Schubert
Matthias Goerne's Schubert survey has established him as one of the most gifted exponents of the song repertoire. Goerne does not merely ‘interpret' Schubert: he 'lives' each song and invites the listener to share this poetry and musical intimacy. Each of the nine albums in this set was designed as an individual programme, a poetic voyage through the vast corpus of Schubert’s lieder. Matthias Goerne made his personal selection from the songs, in which the three great cycles sit alongside many masterpieces like 'Des Fischers Liebesglück', an interpretation which in itself would be enough to justify this magnificent undertaking.
