About

In few words:

Johannes Brahms was an immensely prolific choral composer. His experience in choral conducting (the Wiener Singverein from 1872 to 1875, the Detmold and Hamburg ensembles at the end of the 1850s) brought him complete mastery of all things vocal. The mixed chorus cycles reflect the traditional themes of German Romanticism, in particular the multitudinous facets of amorous sentiments. Brahms's imagination for this repertoire is boundless, and the composer displays considerable skill in counterpoint and polyphony.
An emblematic composer of German Romantic music, Franz Schubert is acknowledged to be the undisputed master of the Lied. He was the first composer to attach such importance to the genre, not only in terms of quantity - he composed no fewer than 600 Lied - but because the spirit of the Lied permeates his entire instrumental output. His exquisite sensibility found its chosen land amidst the great themes dear to Lied: wandering, solitude, separation, thwarted love and liberating death.
