Description
Robert Schumann and Hugo Wolf's most famous song cycles, Dichterliebe ("A poet's love") and Mörike-Leider, are accompanied by Franz Schubert's Schwanengesang ("Swan Song"), a cycle set to poems by Rellstab, Heine, and Seidl.

"Gura's tenor is essentially light … though that's not to say that there's not steel in the tone when required nor that the voice lacks body. In fact, it's a good Schubertian voice. He's also capable of spinning a good vocal line, as he demonstrates throughout these two discs. Good examples of this ability occur in 'Ihr Bild' and 'Am Meer' and are far from isolated instances. His light, easy tone is a pleasure to hear in 'Liebesbotschaft' and he delivers the famous 'Ständchen' well. He's capable of urgency, though, as in 'Frülingssehnsucht' and when we move to the darker Heine settings he has sufficient vocal weight to deliver a dramatic account of 'Der Atlas'. … Again, in that chilling masterpiece, 'Der Doppelgänger' he brings intensity to his singing…. Moving to Schumann's Heine cycle from which Gura offers 10 of the 16 songs, the singer is light and wistful in 'Im wunderschönen Monat Mai' to which his voice is well suited…. I admired the control he demonstrates in spinning an expansive line during 'Ich hab im Traum geweinet' and to conclude the cycle he delivers a strong, defiant account of 'Die alten, bösen lieder'."—MusicWeb International
