The Naxos Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition: Schubert set the poetry of over 115 writers to music. He selected poems from classical Greece, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, from eighteenthcentury German authors, early Romantics, Biedermeier poets, and Heine. The Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition presents all Schubert’s Lieder, over 700 songs, grouped according to the poets who inspired him. Thanks to Bärenreiter’s Neue Schubert-Ausgabe (New Schubert Edition), Tübingen, which uses primary sources, the performers have been able to benefit from the most recent research of the editorial team. This disc is the fourth part of the Romantic Poets series. Volumes One, Two and Three are available on 8.554797, 8.557831, and 8.557832.


Review By David Denton,Naxos,July 2008

In building this series of the complete songs of Schubert, Naxos is also creating a catalogue of present day German lieder singers, and here introduce us to Florian Boesch. With a background of opera appearances in major European theatres and concerts on both sides of the Atlantic, the baritone has specialised in Schubert, including appearances at the prestigious Schubertiade Schwarzenberg. His approach is founded on the heroic quality of his voice. He has chosen songs that generally require that tone, the dark Totengrabers Heimweh (Gravedigger’s Longing) with its spooky qualities just right for a voice so well supported deep into the lower register. More than most singers in this series he risks a wide dynamic range that descends to a mere whisper, his acting ability
