Performed by Diana Damrau (soprano) and  Helmut Deutsch (piano)


After her excellent album of Strauss songs with orchestra, soprano Diana Damrau marks the anniversary of Liszt’s birth with an album of his most celebrated songs in German, French and Italian, accompanied by pianist Helmut Deutsch.

In choosing to record Liszt’s songs, Ms. Damrau selected a repertoire that remains for the most part outside the mainstream of recital programming. Over a period of 45 years, Liszt wrote 70 or so songs, making two or more versions of over a third of them. Damrau’s collection includes his most frequently heard songs, written to German and Italian texts by, among others, Goethe and Heine.
What a wonderful voice! Ms. Damrau shows us her smooth phrasing, and highly musical interpretation; and total control of the musical drama…

Here is an excellent video of Ms. Damrau
