In this recording, German-born Baritone Matthias Goerne presents the eighth volume in his ongoing Schubert music.

The featured work is Schubert’s setting of Goethe’s two-part poem ‘Wanderers Nachtlied’.

A renowned Schubert interpreter, Goerne is well-known for his complete commitment to the composer and to the text. On this new 2-CD set, he is joined by two exceptional collaborators: pianist Helmut Deutsch, and pianist Eric Schneider.

Some of the Schubert songs that are included are the following:

  • An die untergehende Sonne, D457, with Helmut Deutsch (piano)

Mr. Goerne is a highly expressive artist and singer. His voice is mellow and very pleasing. He seems totally committed to fine phrasing and a totally musical interpretation.

Here is an excerpt from “Schubert: Wanderers Nachtlied”, Released in February 10, 2014. Performed by Matthias Goerne, baritone, and Eric Schneider, piano:



And here is another song that is a great favorite of mine: Schubert’s “An Silvia”, D. 891, from his ‘Nacht und Träume’



I could go on indefinitely. But let me end with Schubert’s “Im Frühling, D.882″, from Wanderers Nachtlied, released in February 10, 2014.
