Description
This program of 22 lieder comes mostly from the astonishingly beautiful song cycle Schwanengesang ("Swan Song"), written near the end of the composer's life. (The first seven songs are based on Ludwig Rellstab poems, the next six are by Heinrich Heine, and the final lyric is by Gabriel Seidl.) This BBC broadcast of 1991 was the final concert in the Hall's 90th anniversary season and features the stunning performances we have come to expect from both of these virtuosos.

"Schreier's sensitivity and elegance know no bounds."The Times

"Schreier is in superb voice, each song accorded its special tone-colour and all the texts delivered with exemplary diction and understanding. Now everyone can enjoy the artistry of this memorable recital."Sunday Telegraph

"A source of sound documents to cherish" (BBC Music); "The hall's acoustics are fresh and vivid" (The Independent); "An important souvenir of fine recital singing" (Gramophone). These are the kind of accolades the "Wigmore Hall Live" recording series has been receiving. This venue holds a unique place in London musical life and is an essential platform for the world's most sought-after soloists and chamber musicians. Every week a concert is broadcast on radio and the Internet, but with the launching of this recording label, Wigmore's great performances can be a revelation and a source of enduring pleasure to music lovers worldwide.
