The Naxos Deutsche Schubert-Lied-Edition presents all of Schubert’s Lieder, over 700 songs, grouped according to the poets who inspired him. This is the first of two discs devoted to settings by Claudius, Hölty and Stolberg, the poets of the ‘Göttinger Hainbund’, who wrote some of the most popular folk-style poems of the German Empfindsamkeit (Poetry of Sensibility). Themes include grief, death and ressurrection as well as love, friendship and humour. Together with the classical poetry of Goethe and Schiller, the ‘poets of sensibility’ played the most important part above all in Schubert’s early years as a composer.


Review By Naxos,July 2006

At last Naxos seems to be on a winner in its Schubert series. Given that the competition is so intense, they had two choices: either to produce something so cheap it would undercut its rivals, or go upmarket and produce something of genuine quality. With this release they are choosing the latter course. Holzmair’s warm, Austrian-inflected baritone is excellent in Schubert, though those who think only in terms of Fischer-Dieskau’s more Teutonic style may not take to it. However, Schubert wasn’t German. Holzmair’s gentler, more lyrical ambience captures the composer’s natural character very well indeed.
