Description
The only DVD with this famed song cycle sung by a tenor (in Schubert's original keys), Prégardien's Die schöne Müllerin also includes a bonus feature: "The Story Behind the Cycle," in which the singer explains his unique use of ornamentation.

"I was particularly moved by the final sequence of death-haunted songs that culminates in the sublime 'Des Baches Wiegenlied,' the brook's welcoming lullaby to the miller in his death, here given a more forceful reading than usual. Prégardien sings with great sincerity and commitment to every note and word…. His delivery is less sumptuous than Fritz Wunderlich's but more varied, his music-making more energetic than the placid, refined approach of Aksel Schiøtz, and he's far less mannered than Ian Bostridge. I find his voice to be quite beautiful… and his interpretation brings out meaningful contrasts in characterization between verses in the strophic songs. The miller's alternation between delusion and pathos as the cycle progresses is masterfully showcased…. Gees plays Schubert's magnificent accompaniments with visible affection and perfect ensemble…. I strongly recommend this performance."—Fanfare
