Thuille: Selected Songs
Leila Pfister; Hartmut Hšll
A comprehensively and multifariously educated musician, Ludwig Thuille (1861-1907) was until a short time ago a shadowy figure encountering the reader of yellowed books. It is only his correspondence with Richard Strauss that has kept his erstwhile significance alive. Signs of their friendship were the almost contemporaneous settings of specific poems. Campaigned for his Lieder, now, after the first release with Roman Trekel (Capriccio CD C5058), Hartmut Höll presents an additional album of Thuille’s songs with the mezzo-soprano Leila Pfister.
