HRobert Schumann composed some amazing music. Not only four wonderful symphonies, but also chamber music, sonatas, piano pieces, music for violin, Viola, and more.
Today I want to tell you about his Lieder. Specifically his song cycle called Dichterliebe, German for Poet’s Love.

All performed by Mauro Peter (tenor), with Helmut Deutsch (piano)
Born in Lucerne, Switzerland, the young tenor Mauro Peter studied in Munich/Germany. He was winner of the first prize and the audience award at the 2012 International Robert Schumann Competition in Zwickau. He had a sensational debut in 2012 with Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin, accompanied by Helmut Deutsch, at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg.
From that moment on Mauro Peter has been a regular guest at international concert halls and opera houses. Helmut Deutsch is one of the most sought-after pianists for chamber music and vocal accompaniment. He studied piano, composition, and musicology at the Vienna Music Academy, where he was awarded the Vienna Composition Prize.
On this CD they join together to record ‘A Poet’s Love’ and selected music of Robert Schumann (1810-1856).
