Peter Schreier Singt Volkslied
Label: BERLIN CLASSICS
Format: COMPACT DISC
SCHREIER RADIO CHOIR LEIPZIG GEWANDHAUS ORCHESTRA LEIPZIG NEUMANN
Beautifully fallen a little out of time: The most beautiful German folk songs sung by Peter Schreier, tenor of the century! In 1975 the GDR label Eterna released the record Peter Schreier singt Volkslieder. The original master tapes have now been remastered for the first time and will be available in modern sound on an album with the original vinyl cover from 17 May 2019. This program was recorded almost 45 years ago in Leipzig with great attention to detail. Sensitive and powerful arrangements, an outstanding interpretation and of course the impressive line-up of artists: Peter Schreier, musician of the Gewandhausorchester and Thomanerchor Leipzig as well as the Leipziger Rundfunkchor. Admittedly: today such a programme with German folk songs seems to have fallen out of time. And yet in this timeless recording you can discover wonderful song melodies, old reverential verses, the velvety soft timbre of Peter Schreier or simply that one finds oneself quietly humming along with well-known sages.
